I met up with my friend Dana today in the beach town we used to live in. We had lunch on the rooftop deck of a restaurant next to the sand. It was good for me to sit in the sun.
After lunch, we walked around on the pier and the beach. Memories of my previous life came flooding back. All the things I wanted to share with Madeline.
I wanted to see her learn about and discover all the things I loved. I wanted to walk through life holding her hand and leading her, until she was old enough to do the leading. I wanted so much, and yet, not that much at all.
