Chanted to the beat of my steps instead. Om Namah Shivaya.
Thinking about a poem--
Sea of Names
I wrote my daughters' names large
In the sand. We all three jumped
Into the letters. "Look,
I'm jumping into the "C"
Of Lucia," I said to Sofia.
She got it.
"Hey, that's a pun!" she said
As she went to jump into the sea
Of Sofia. It was a new kind of selfie.
