blue


The blue waves of the sweeping Baie des Anges (Bay of Angels) crescent softly along the pebbly beaches of Nice, France. (2008). This picture is best viewed large; click on the photo for a higher-resolution version.

It's just before dark. We take off our sandals. Smooth beach pebbles cool the bottoms of our feet, but the hushed roar of the sea kindles our senses warm.

We walk speechless for a mile ... then, together, we sit with the glowing lights of the city behind us. Ahead, the water gradients a billion shades of blue, fading in luminance toward the ultimately sightless horizon.

I look at you.

You smile.

Whether this is the beginning or the end, for the two of us, it'll never exactly be like this again.
