Four At The Beach

"The four stages of man are infancy, childhood, adolescence, and obsolescence." ~ Art Linkletter
Early in the morning on a hot summer day, four yellow beach umbrellas lined up in a row. Neat and clean blue cushions ready for the first customer. The ocean breeze always blows off of the ocean here, cooling the air, lessening the humidity. The waves crash over the sandbars and by the time they reach the shore line, rock back and forth with the sound of a lullaby to send me off to sleep. I think I'll take one of those lounge chairs, cushions and umbrellas.... perhaps they are reserved for those of us in the fourth stage of life... I hope so.
