A sandy beach is soft only because the water takes its time caressing the shoreline. Thousands of years. And it will continue on for thousands of years after we’re gone. Always gently following the curving landscape. So take a day to slow down and savour an enduring beauty that is here only because of patience. Pay attention to how their hand feels in yours. How her hair tickles you when it’s taken by the wind. Or even over the sound of the waves, you can still feel his heart beat. And although we all eventually drift from this world, our mark in the sand erased, our time here was not wasted.
