Old man and the Sea

Boy of 3. Walking on the beach. Sand in his tiny shoes. Barefoot. Running around till it’s time to catch breath. Peanuts. Sun swallowed by the water. Mystery.

Boy of 5. Walking on the beach. Filling his shoes with sand knowingly. Barefoot. Watching catch ball on the shore. Peanuts. Sunset. West. Love.

Boy of 7. Walking on the beach. Floaters. No more sand. Barefoot. Walking across the road. Cutlets and ketchup. Peanuts. Sunset. Darkness. Daring.

Boy of 10. Meadow near the beach. Refusal to take off footwear. Peanuts. Sunset. Hates the crowd. Complains. Uninterested.

Boy of 14. No more beach. Weekends full of homework. Video games. TV. Monotony.

Boy of 17-25. Landlocked.

Boy Man of 29. Yearning for the beach. Peanuts. Crowds. Sunsets. Bright lights. Yearning.
