A young boy, Jovint (pronounced jo-vint) was on his way down to the beach. He always loved going to the beach. It was a time, usually, for calm reflection. While young, he still understood the value and practice of quieting the mind – emptying the thoughts from one’s head. He took pride in his ability to clear his head. He walked with a smile on his face as he made his way down to the beach because of his excitement that he was going to ‘clean house.’ On most mornings he came down to the beach to clear his head, but today was different.

He dug his hand deep down into the sand and raked towards himself a huge pile.With his other hand, he scooped some water out and poured some of it onto the pile of sand. The sand, now on the way to a consistency of mud, but not quite there, was easier to mold. Canite (pronounced cah-nee-tay) pulled some more sand into the pile and again, poured some water onto the pile.

Tocano (pronounced toe-cah-noh) was sitting cross-legged near the shore. For some reason, he always found that he was able to do his best thinking here. Maybe it was the sand, maybe it was the ocean, maybe it was the waves. He didn’t really need to know what aspect of this spot allowed him to come to such brilliant conclusions.
