I thought this was beautiful! I really liked how the story unfolded from that first image of the girl carrying things down to the beach, then developed it slowly till we had the full picture.
A beautiful story about change. I like the way it avoids defining the change as good or bad; it retains its ambiguity and so reflects what seems the true nature of change.
This is a great perspective piece. I like how the "you" and "I" alternate without confusion--fun.
I love the subtle messages and themes in this story. The last line is great, too!
