Right now...

It is 12:45 am and 71 degrees. I'm sitting on the sand in leggings and a hoodie. The moon is nearly full and so bright; its light is only slightly muted by thin clouds. There is a deep orange glow on the horizon, like a tiny sun setting. Light houses across the bay flicker on and off. A slight breeze blows, and I can hear the waves slapping gently against the boats, and the mild clanging of chains or bouys.
There are people I wish I could share this with. There are people I would love to talk to right now. At this moment though, I am content with being alone.
I could stay here forever.
