Story: I dug my toes into the sand exactly where dry hot met cool damp. As the welcomed coolness radiated up my feet I couldn’t help but feel exactly in the right place. I sat back, enjoying the moisture building up around my feet while hypnotized by the deepest blue waters. The definition of “Unearth” is to discover something hidden, lost or secret by digging, or turning up. In that moment, not only the beach was being unearthed by my happy toes – but also a feeling of utter relief that had been hidden for far too long.
