…my childhood playground of the rocks and the beach were a supportive character in my early life and remain so today. The permanence of the glacier-scraped sandstone, the jewels of the tidal pools and the reassurance that the tides will continue to go in and out are all integrated into my soul. My family may have been inconsistent, awkward with displaying love and adept at giving mixed messages but the beach and point were quite opposite.
I go there now and I can feel a huge hug. Unashamed. Immediate. Unconditional.
And I can return whenever I want.
