Chilly Breezes/Shore Memories

A bracing breeze just wafted through my window, triggering a pleasant Jersey shore memory…

It feels like early in the season, just before the boardwalk is open, except for one small candy store.  Happily, they have candy necklaces!  Those unhygienic, fabulous elastic beauties that simply cannot be resisted.  You know that you not only look stunning, but you are wearing a treat that will last most of the evening, or at least as long as a satisfying jaunt along the shore, zipped up in last year’s sweatshirt, thrilling to the feeling of  your freezing, wet toes.

My world is a wonder of visual candy and foreboding shadow shapes vying every waking moment for my full attention.
