Inhaltsangabe zu „A Sanctuary by the Sea“ von Anna Samuels

The sand that covered the wide expanse of beach lifted as the wind grew fierce. The sea breathed, in and then out, pushing its breath up on to the shore. The sky above grew dark and tempestuous as the clouds threatened to release their downpour. As lightning cracked, the clouds rolled as if restless. The rain began to fall and the sea rippled as if being touched when cold, the shivers spreading swiftly. Underneath the elements, a woman stood unnaturally still in the middle of the storm. Barefoot on the sand, she stood aloof, looking out to sea. Her mind was as reckless as the storm, unsettled and unhappy. Turning her face to the rain she let the drops cover her face. They fell like tears allowing her to grieve whilst she forced herself to let go of the pain inside. She breathed. It was as if for the first time. She released the shutters from her eyes and allowed herself to look again. She looked at the sea, seeing this time the beauty of it, the beauty of the storm around her. She raised her face to the rain once again. She smiled, letting go. She let her arms drift outwards, skywards and laughed. Laughed with real joy. She was free. She had finally managed to let go. Life would continue, could continue. With unsurpassed joy she lowered her arms and wrapped them around herself, hugging her body tightly, allowing herself warmth and shelter from the storm. After a moment, she then turned and walked away. Away from the storm…away from the pain and away from the old life.
