I love going to this beach. Not because it has the most amazing waves. Or because it has the softest sand to sit upon. Or even because it has the best weather of the whole island. I love it because the stone man shouldering the cliff face reminds me of how I feel at times. Like I am crumbling under the weight but I am still expected to remain strong and carry my burdens. Looking up at that stone man strengthens me, stills the panic in my mind and calms my breathing to the flow of the waves, gently lapping on the shore. I know I can survive another week.
