|Love found me under a summer sky.It walked right up to me with a wide grin and said, "Hello."I shaded my eyes with a quivering hand.Squinting, I espied a shimmering sun-haloed form.I squirmed.I fussed with a wayward shoulder strap.Sand clumped in my damp swimsuit seemed to shift and chafe.Water lapping, children laughing, birds chirping, breeze whispering, all muffled beneath a wave of exposure.Tongue-tied, I hesitated.
