summer

We drive twenty minutes straight to The Beach. I park in the same parking lot my Mom did when I was little, and we walk past the bathhouse, where the kids are still playing hacky sack.

We find a spot close to the water and lay down our towels and big-bag-of-shovels-and-buckets and dig holes until we find water -chase seagulls - find smooth rocks - bury our feet in the sand and

there is no time

there is no place
