The Imagination Stone
The ocean was gray today. Where there was normally delineation between the ocean and the sky, today there was none. Just a gray ocean that blurred into a gray sky. He looked up and down the beach. The sand almost looked gray as well. He turned and watched the cars going by. He looked at the houses on the nearby cliffs. Everything had a tinge of gray. He wondered if he was seeing the world colored by his emotions. He shivered. The normally warm southern California day was cold, damp and dreary.
