I love sand: the feel of walking through it barefoot and how doing so builds foot and leg muscles that otherwise remain dormant; the feel of fingers and hands gliding through sun-heated sand; how it cushions if one falls; that pollen and dust are rarely an issue at the beach; how one can “wash” dishes in sand while camping in the desert.

Add that sand can be an extraordinary medium for artists–whether used for prayer in Buddhist mandalas or competition in sandcastle contests–what’s not to love?
