If I could choose the perfect way to begin and end each day, it would be walking on a beach in the moments when the arrival and departure of light mark the speeding up and slowing down of life’s rhythms.
In that specific symmetry of transition — from night to day, day to night, from sea to land — is the reminder that nothing remains the same for long. All of life is transition. The joys we cherish won’t last, but neither will the sorrows.
