The Timeless Beach

"Whatever the beach, it is still possible, in the presence of the timeless wash of waves, the sibilance of sand, and the warm kiss of the sun, to forget the nagging sense of fealty to cash, work and responsibility. After all is said and done, we still come to the beach to slip through a crack of time into the paradise of self-forgetfulness." (Excerpt from The Beach: The History of Paradise on Earth, by Lena Lencek and Gideon Bosker, published by Viking Penguin, 1998, pg. 286.)
