This was warming.
This was cooling.
Both I haven’t had in a while. Well, the chai latte I haven’t had in literally years, but it was what I craved most on this cold morning.
And though our absence from the beach doesn’t quite match the chai, we have been away from its immediate views for weeks now. We headed down after our brunch, as the wind whipped first the waves, then us.
Both were oddly comforting, in completely different ways. It also felt new again. We had been away from them both for a while, so it was like seeing them in a different light, from different eyes.
All because of time, and distance. The adage is true – it does make the heart grow fonder. 💞
