I feel as though I have come upon my own beach glass! This is beautifully written - the flow is smooth and the ending a delight! You painted a picture of calmness and hope and sweet memories. Excellent writing! I hope more people stumble upon this!

I loved this! Your writing evoked such a strong sense of presence--I could taste childhood again, and feel the sand. The second part threw me for a moment, but I really liked the parallel after I got back in sync. Beautiful analogy without being too obvious.
This is superb writing. The descriptionas are lovely. I felt as if I was there. Might be a bit short on topic, but otherwise, this is practically flawless. Big thumbs up.

This one of my favorites this week. I love the line, "I close my eyes to see more clearly." Beautiful writing.

Well done. Very visual through out. Reminded me of a poem entitled "Beach Glass." Glad to have you in the puppy pen.

I love the visuals and smells (Coppertone!) in this piece. I got caught up in the description about finding the beach glass - then the analogy was such a blessing. Fantastic!
This calmed me as i read it. Such detail, I'd love to spend a day like this. Thanks!
