I'm sitting on the beach now, watching and listening to the waves. There is the lightest of breezes flowing. The sun is slowly setting behind the palm trees--slowly but still too quickly . . . It's gone now, leaving only traces of its brightness in the sky. The tops of the palms are enveloped in a bright velvety blues.
I wish I had my camera to help me take it all in. I'm afraid to close my eyes, afraid to blink because I don't want to lose a single moment. All too soon, everything will be gone, and I'll be left with only the lingering taste of sugar on my tongue.
I could scurry to my hotel to get my camera so that I could attempt to capture something of this place before it dissipates; but I think I will just be. I will stay here basking in my last night in Costa Rica and letting my thoughts be carried away with the tide. Come, Sadness, I am here and I am one with you and I am not afraid.
