the immediate pleasure of the feel and sound of chopping green peppers (thanks, Beth(any), for that lifelong awareness), cooking for people, the full-up feeling of a week's worth of sunshine soaked into skin, sand wearing away summer-long calluses on weary feet, old bay stuck under my fingernails from cracking crab legs and peeling shrimp, watching bruce and susan being grandparents, noticing a lone sand dollar on the shore, waves throttling the shore under the pier, homemade guacamole, blowing bubbles on the beach, the triangle game, getting halfway through a morning jog and reversing direction to find myself running right into the sunrise stretching over the shoreline, hush puppies at the chesapeake house, and marking the years with the annual family vacation.
