Thank you Dear Reader for taking precious time in opening up this piece. This piece is a contribution to the STSC Symposium, a monthly set-theme collaboration between STSC writers. The topic for this upcoming issue is The Beach. Before you begin, if you’re new, WELCOME! I’m glad to have you here. If you’ve been here before, glad to have you here once again with words of mine. I appreciate your supporting me.
I love the humility and playful resolve to have play and joy on our own terms, summarized with this refrain, "why belittle myself?" in the middle of all this glory gifted to us.
