Catching Waves --Wind (a beginning)

"Standing ankle deep in the water, as the waves come and go. I stand, a six year old. Mesmerized by this vast space, the movement of the waves, an amusement ride that does not stop. Being there, with ticket in hand, I watch and try to catch each and every wave, and lay down in the evening remembering the stories the waves told me …This is the beginning of their story." rjh
