Catch the wave

Deerfield Beach, FL
December 2014
Some days, all you really want to do is stare at the waves as they wash up by your feet and wonder what happens to them when they're gone. If they aren't captured - in pixels, in our memory, whatever - does that mean they somehow matter less?

Or maybe I'm overthinking it. The purpose of a vacation, after all, is to disconnect, and not get all metaphysical over the historic meaning of a wave.

Your turn: So am I overthinking this?

Note: This photo completes the Liquidity theme that we've been exploring as part of our weekly Thematic theme. If you'd still like to contribute, please head here. Our next theme, The Camera, goes live at 7 Eastern tonight.

I just like the feel of the sand under my toes and the waves hitting my legs, Carmi. And the smell of the salt air.

Absolutely not! What happens to waves is just what we should be thinking about on a vacation! Our mind is fascinating in how it's always recording and absorbing for us, and the life of a wave is far better than say taxes or politics right?!

I do not think getting metaphysical is overthinking. Life rushes by so fast that it is only on vacation when we can be elemental in thought.
