“Tiny reflects on his first day at ‘Beach.’ A giant colorful ball that he can’t wrap his arms around – he chases it and kicks up sand. He picks it up and drops it again, and it bounces away.

His finger is sore from a baby crab that he was going to keep forever. What’s wild is wild – what’s beautiful is difficult – and nothing, not even the ocean’s clamor in a little sea shell, is meant to be kept.”
