“…….unafraid that anyone would hear him he sobbed unreservedly till tears ran down his cheeks and dropped to the water that lapped at his feet. When he was finished he heard a voice in the darkness say “Salt water is the cure for everything”.  He jumped up clutching the bag in his hand for a fear had taken over him, “who’s there? He said, “are you in the water? I can’t see your face the moon is behind you”The most beautiful woman he’d ever seen emerged from the rocks just to his right.  “Saltwater, it’s either sweat, tears or the sea”.
