when i see the ocean. a feeling comes over me that's hard to explain. so when i saw this little girl. i had to laugh. somehow. magically. she made my feelings come alive.
first she pointed at the water. and then quickly, not wanting to take her eyes off the brilliant shades of turquoise, made sure her loved ones were watching the waves with her.
when she knew they were
that she didn't have to worry about a thing.
she just stood there. frozen in place. awestruck. and soaked it all in.
when the turquoise waves danced wildly
taking deep breaths while they crept closer to her
she applauded them
funny. i do that too.
in an adult kind of way
where the applause is only heard in my mind
i'll be clapping out loud
just like her
sandy if you're reading this. this little girl looked just like alexandra did at that age.
