 The sea-shore is a sort of neutral ground, a most advantageous point from which to contemplate this world.

It is even a trivial place.


The waves forever rolling to the land are too far-travelled and untamable to be familiar.


Creeping along the endless beach amid the sun-squall and the foam, it occurs to us that we, too, are the product of sea-slime.
