Noon, twelve o’clock, mid-day and the sun is beating down on a wide expanse of beach. My eyes are closed but I can hear the lazy sounds of summer. Although all around me and quite near, the vastness of the beach diminishes the sounds. They seem far away. All I can hear is the gentle distant lapping of the water, children’s voices laughing as they play and the occasional scream of the gulls as they swoop over the sea.
Summer time.
I think back to those summer lunch picnics on the beach when I was a child. Those halcyon days when time seemed immortal when we thought we would never grow up, my sisters and I. We would always be children.
Now, I rouse myself from my elderly nap in my beach chair and listen to children, two generations on, being called for their picnic lunches in the heat of the summer mid-day just as we were nearly seventy years ago.
Same beach
Same sun
Same noontime
Nothing really changes.
