Leaving your mark.....

I grabbed this shot of Avery, doing what we all have done at some point or another, writing her name in the sand. There is something about leaving your mark in the sand that seems timeless and rather instinctual. I remember the day my dear brother, Tom passed away, I found myself at the shore line on a cold Christmas Eve morning writing his name and a message in the sand. Maybe its a way to communicate with a force greater than ourselves, something like, "Look, it's me down here". I do not really understand why we do it but at some level it feels right
