In keeping with tradition, you may recall Maisie touching the sea before she touched the earth.... It was only fair, that Elliot be awarded the same joy.
Teeny toes, baby feet. So soft, delicate, perfect. They had never touched the ground. The first contact with the ocean first and land. Documented. Shared. Beautiful.
I’ve always favored the sea. Loved the smell, the depth, the movement. Have lived close to, or lived on it. It only seemed right, that Elliot should touch the sea before he touched the earth.
