About the Book
This book compiles many of the stories and poems inspired by an afternoon photographing the shifting patterns of sand and crushed seashell on Chesterman Beach on Vancouver Island's Pacific coastline, British Columbia, Canada. It was published as part of a 2018 gallery exhibit, Harmony in Word and Form, which featured an installation of nine photographs taken that day. The book was displayed with the photographs so gallery visitors could read the stories and poems the photographs had inspired. The title is taken from the story which was forming in my mind even as I was combing the beach for photographs.
