Nothing lasts forever, nothing can wait too long. A lot of the people who grew up around here have memories of this place; this sea-foam-blue whale. Whenever I mention that it’s still there they say, “Really? I would have though it was torn down by now. I really loved that place.” They haven’t been here to see it and now it’s disappearing, distantly, far away from their eyes. I think you have to take the chance to see these things when it’s given to you; no use thinking it’ll be there waiting endlessly for you.
