“There I was, standing on the beach. I could hear the ocean crashing loudly, but more than that, I heard a song. A song I had never heard before was coming from the sea.”
“It was as if the sea was calling to me. There was barely a moon that night. I looked across the water and saw a rippling silver walkway. It looked like nothing more than the moon’s reflection at first, but then it became clear to me. The voice kept calling and I answered.”
“What did you say?”
“I didn’t speak, not yet, I took a step forward. The song rang out more loudly and beautifully. I kept walking. I walked and I walked on that silver pathway. I should have been afraid, but I wasn’t. I was so far from the shore and water surrounded me, but I was not afraid. Suddenly, I felt a warmth in my chest and the song of the sea lowered to a hush.”
