I found a place more beautiful than any I’d ever seen.

I first came across it while building sandcastles with my children. I showed them how to dig down to the wet sand beneath the surface. We raked our fingers through it, creating rivers and roads.

The sand clung to my skin and told me of a place beyond fear and striving.

“This place is pure,” it told me.

I taught my children how only a gentle touch can shape the castles.

“This place is tender,” it said.

I told them about the rocks, creatures, wind, and currents that helped to create the sand.

“This place is timeless,” it said.

And for just a moment, with burd hands and feet, I felt it. A peace more pure, tender, and eternal than any I’d ever experienced flowed from the center of my heart.
