S: Kona, Hawaii September 23-30, 2009
1: At the beach, life’s different. Time doesn’t move, Waves crash the ocean front, Kissing my feet. Sea glass glistens in the sun, The warm air dances around me Giving a new start to the world. The sand tingles under my feet Like being tickled by love. Laying on the beach shore, Tanning the day away. The tans may fade, But memories Never do.
