Waters Deep

I stand with my feet in the ocean, the sun shining down on my bare shoulders from above.  The perfectly white sandy beach is in front of me.  Mostly everyone I know  is on this beach.  They are sun bathing, throwing frisbies, drinking wine & laughing, chasing kids and splashing in the water next to me….
