I took an early morning walk on the beach before I went to visit him and photographed from a different point of view. You've seen dozens of pictures of the water, the waves, the islands on this blog, so how about this for a change?

Years ago when I was acting, a sage director once told me it was absolutely essential to step out of the character's skin before leaving the theatre, especially when playing someone sick or dying. I frequently wonder what it's like to have the ancient body my mom possesses. My knees are 61. What do almost 90-year-old knees feel like? I wonder what it's like to "pull for breath" as my boyfriend so often says he does. I wonder about so many of the things that he and my mother are going through. I put myself in their shoes, but only for a brief moment. Then I step out again.
