Malibu – Present Day
After standing for some time, I sat on the blanket, and watched the seagulls chasing sand crabs. Thomas was still organizing a shaded spot under the umbrella while I was soaking in some rays. Watching what I thought of as “my feathered and crawling friends” reminded me of how my relationship with Thomas began. On some level he was the crab and I was the seagull. Or was he the seagull and I the crab?
