The young man and the old man and the Sea

Marcello alter Mann 23_07_14

In a summer of a thousand Julys, the red flag waved, swimming strictly prohibited. Only a man is in the Sea. And the waves, they eat him. He’s gone, then he is back and gone…. Marcello, rescue swimmer calls over the water. From the neighboring beach the Lifeguard is alarmed. The Sea stay`s alone, Marcello heads off. The missing shows up, starts to walk out. Which elderly man would like to be rescued by a young man, it thinks in me.
