The Sea Wind

Yesterday was a very dark day.

The weather was dark and for no reason in particular, my mood matched with outside.  It was cold, raining and the wind was blowing up a storm. Not the weather to venture outside if you don’t have to, but being inside was making me feel anxious.

We walked by the sea.

The waves were rough, pounding the pebbles and throwing spray at us. The wind howled, relentlessly pushing my hair in my eyes and stinging my skin.

And I was perfectly happy and at peace.
