I kept watching him for a long time. He was just standing there - a tiny figure illuminated by beautiful winter light. He looked mesmerised, facing the wild and cold ocean. He hesitated whether to enter the water, but did not seam to want to leave either. A moment transfixed in time and space, embedded into one's memory. Something you return to as an adult; a part of who you become.
