and we walked and walked across the endless sands.

a long time ago a dear friend of mine, who loved to take photos, gave me a black and white photo of her feet similar to the above photo. she was standing in the sand in santa cruz. her toes buried in it, a rush of water almost upon them. the photo resulted in her lens falling into the water just as the wave was sucked away from the earth. the lens was lost, but the photo remains, i still have it framed in my home.

that dear friend of mine would have been 30 years old on this very day.

happy birthday, ashley. i still miss you so.
