this is a really low quality picture of the beach past midnight. there’s not really anything special about it - nothing significant happened in this moment. but I remember taking this picture because it was after a dinner party that I went to with my parents, and I was standing there alone. I remember thinking: i know absolutely nothing about the world around me. I remember staring out at the water and realizing that I had no idea what I was looking at. I feel unimportant sometimes but seeing this picture…I want to be something. I want to educate myself. I want to experience. I want go back to this beach when I’m older and be able to say that I’m a bigger person; that I no longer melt into the grain of sand that I felt like I was when standing there. I want to be as big as the ocean and as beautiful as the shoreline; as important as the tide and as mysterious as the water. I want to become something.
