I forgot how grand it could be to watch the light set into the water, and how the tides made music by themselves and how peaceful it could be at dusk and how sacred it was as the sun just began to rise in the early morning. I forgot that there were places that beautiful and serene where there wasn't any hint of office towers and safety drills."
