Sunrise at Nantasket Beach

I love winter beaches because they remind me of making theater. Like an unfinished set surrounded by lights waiting to be hung, they aren’t ready for an audience. Still, there’s anticipatory energy as the world of the story comes together. Soon, the temperature will warm, the beachgrass will revive, and the show will go on. But for now, I enjoy the backstage tour.

Dry grasses viewed through a narrow gap between two vertical fence slats, with a soft-focus background of a cloudy sky with a pale sunrise

A wooden stair railing leading down to a sandy beach with rocks in the foreground and the ocean in the background a pale sunrise.
