"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they go right. You believe lies so you eventually trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart, so that better things can fall together." -Marilyn Monroe


The pitter patter of feet hitting the pavement;
Each step getting faster as we were walking down the hill.
The smell of salty water and low tide fills the air;
But the odor isn’t one to scrunch your nose.
When we reached the end of the hill we stood there;
We waited a moment for the dog and cat to reach us.
My mother and father stared down the road;
Seeing the long but oh so familiar walk in front of them.
After about ten minutes we reach the beach;
My mother pushes my stroller until it meets the sand.
She unbuckles my seat belts and lets me take my first steps;
The ground is cold; all you hear are the waves crashing.
My father, my mother, my pets and I sat on the beach;
The first tradition for our little family on Catherine Street.
