154. Between the braids of hair nestled sand

Between the braids of hair nestled sand. Dirty grainy sand, accumulated from spending most of her adult life homeless on beautiful white beaches in the Caribbean.

By now it was hard to see where the hair ended and the sand started.

    I loved your story!
    I love the beach…the ocean. This story struck a cord within me…the longing to be forever roaming the beach along the Gulf of Mexico. Perhaps someday the particles of sand will find me as I wander the coastline in search of interesting shells. I think I would gladly be a willing host.
