A long time passed, yet the boy found no answers, and so he de- cided to cUmb the hill beyond the beach. Perhaps the view from the summit would show him his horizon once again. The boy climbed and climbed, yet the ground grew ever steeper beneath his soft feet. He found no trails, no signs that meant much of anything; no ar- rows to point the way. He began to feel he no longer cared. " What if it is not worthwhile after all? But 1 should go on. " I can ' t " But 1 must. I want to. " He began his climb, losing his way again and again, only to begin anew. The way grew rough, the wind cold. Not thinking of looking back, he made his way higher and higher. Passing over bramble and rock, his past life was torn from him. Darkness fell on the child. He found himself alone in the length- ening shadows. Falling again and again, he wound his way upward, desire beating down his fatigue and decision overcoming his fear. More confident of his prowess, he continued. Bruised and battered, he looked up for the first time, and saw the peak looming ever near- er in the moonlight. Before long, the way became less steep. He collapsed exhausted on the summit and slept. Awakened by a seagull, the boy arose and stood before the first rays of the morning sun. As the light glanced over the waters, his eyes filled with understanding and he remembered. The mystery of the horizon vanished before his knowing eyes. Rejoicing, he shout- ed to the other children of the beach to come and join him. " It ' s wonderful, glorious! " the boy-man exclaimed, " lean see. . . myself ... as I am. "

Once upon a time, there were little children and a beach. One day, a little boy found himself standing before the rising sun. His eyes were filled with wonder; he reached to hold the sea and sky in his fragile hands. A lonely seagull rose from the shore line and spread his wings across the golden sun. All at once, the boy discov- ered his first horizon. The lights glancing off the water blinded him, and as quickly, his beach world was shattered forever. He turned, bewildered, and sought a place to regain his sight. Searching again for his horizon, yet not knowing where, he reeled aimlessly on the beach. Crying in despair, yet not knowing why, he searched for whatever could make his dream real once more. First he spotted a tiny crab hurrying about his daily tasks. " Please sir, can you help me solve the mystery? " , he pleaded. " No! " , shouted the other emphatically. " The sea is the sea; there is no more, " and angrily turned away. The frightened child began to run; the laughing shoreline mocked his plight. " Aren ' t the shifting sands enough when there is no more? " echoed the wiry tufts of grass which tripped him in his flight. He stumbled upon a dog chasing his tail in the sand. " Peace, " pledged the flop-eared canine. " Where? " asked the child. " Inside, " the puppy answered. " Not in me, " sighed the child.
