"Everything the light touches is our kingdom"- The Lion King. In many ways this image makes me very nostalgic. I grew up in a coastal city and the beach was my family's go to place for fun, relaxation or anything else you can think of. I fondly remember the days when I used to stand close to the waves, running away from the water when the waves approached and then run back towards it as the waves receded. The many attractions like the horserides, the food vendors, the smell of roasted corn and colorful kites all bring a smile to my face even today. When I saw this boy looking at the sun's rays in awe, I was reminded of myself many years ago, when simple things brought immense joy and life was uncomplicated. I now make a toast: "To childhood, to innocence, To good times!"
