They slept soundly whilst I stumbled out the front door of our holiday home into the early dawn.
Following the sandy path that twisted and twirled across the headland I came to the edge of a cliff that overlooked the pacific ocean.
Standing on the edge, letting my vertigo tease me,I watched the darkness fade to gold.
History unfolding chromatically in front of me.
I wanted to fall so much,
I turned and walked back,
to find that coffee was waiting,
and it was still hot.
