LC Textured Ankle Pant
They almost tore it down in ’67.
Your mother was there, raising Cain. Others too.

Now it’s where you walk George every morning at 6 a.m., before the crowds. He likes the bluffs, chasing the tennis ball on the rocky shore, and gnawing the scattered driftwood. You like the sunrise, the wind on your face and the humpbacks in September.
This textured ankle pant and soft cotton sweater with the loose knit shoulders and V-shaped hem reminds me of walks like this; quiet moments on eastern shores; moments that generations of people before you traveled bravely to acquire. Some things should stay right where they are, if not for nostalgia’s sake, then because the past still aids in navigation, be that of the sea, and life.
