"Write Your Worries On The Sand"

"I walked slowly out on the beach.
 A few yards below high-water mark I stopped and read the words again: 
WRITE YOUR WORRIES ON THE SAND.
   I let the paper blow away, reached down and picked up a fragment of shell.  
Kneeling there under the vault of the sky, I wrote several words, one above the other.
   Then I walked away, and I did not look back. I had written my troubles on the sand. 
   The tide was coming in."

- Arthur Gordon
