Imagine this,an idyllic scene.
You are walking on a endless beach beside a tropical sea,the sand curls between your toes and the sun hangs high above,carefreeness?
Is that a word?
There is no one,not a soul but then far away a spot of darkness lures the brightness and grows,from perhaps a mile apart your shared path converges.
a person, a woman or girl?
The sun is fearsome as you pass close to one another at the waters edge and smile a greeting of ‘We are both far from our homes”
You glance back..surely not?
‘Excuse me!I think I made those earrings you are wearing!”
William Blake and the grain of sand spring to mind.
I always look at jewellery,remember people by their jewellery,upon the tube,in a restaurant,buying an icecream with my kids in the park but that one has always stood out.
If I hadn’t made those earrings that could not have happened,we went on to be friends for many years.
Somehow that makes me believe,not always sure in what..but maybe just believing is enough.
