Where Do the Waves Begin?

“She heard the staggered heartbeat of the waves outside, the syncopated drip of the faucet. She wondered where a wave started. Maybe it started way out there in a storm. But it came here, to this coast, in this moment. . . . It was like her friend, breaking against her gently from far away.”

– Kim Stafford, “A Wave’s Purpose,” from Wind on the Waves: Stories of the Oregon Coast
