You missed catching the balloon and I missed getting to say hello to you.

After a walk on the seawall, we happened to sit near each other on the knoll near the aquatic centre and roller skate area at Sunset Beach. You were wearing black shorts and Birkenstocks and writing and reading. I thought it was really sweet when you tried to rescue a three year old’s balloon from flying away. At times you seemed like you were lost in thought and I tried to catch your eye when you looked in my direction. Curious to know if you are writing the next great novel or just enjoying some peaceful mindfulness. I was the tall South Asian woman wearing black shorts and bathing suit top, and sitting with a friend and our bikes.
