The first day of school holidays, our two week break. No rushing, no going, no doing.
When the sky and the ocean made a patchwork of blue above us, and we were the only ones in the world beneath it. And the winter sun was warm on our faces, and we discarded scarves and let our toes feel sand and sea.
I leaned into the sunshine and closed my eyes and said silent thanks for this place.
Not only this place of sand and sea, this place of contentment in me.
