A place for thought.

Sand. It can be hot. It can grind and abrase. For sand to enter the world of praise it needs to be washed, at least once a day, with cold salty water. Treated this way sand turns to a soft, forgiving friend that pushes between your toes, gives graciously when you fall upon your knees, and conforms to contours when laid upon. Some care is still required; sand, by nature, is clingy, it wants to adhere, a joiner. This must be kept in check. Never allow sand “in”, it should treated as a friend of a friend.   And as a friend of a friend sand should never be invited home. If sand is taken from the edge of the cold salty water it instantly becomes a guest over staying their welcome, very hard to get rid of and always a nuisance.
