Here's a photo of Beyoncé leaping off a yacht while vacationing on the Carter-Knowles family's go-to rented yacht, The Galactica Star, off the coast of Sardinia.

Of course, Bey doesn't just "fall" like you or I would.

No, she sort of just hangs there, slipping into a glistening second beyond seconds--where time stops, and hardens into amber; the longest September afternoon, warm and sad and late.

Suspended there for centuries, maybe.

The trench blue of the Mediterranean, rippling slowly outward; parting itself for her entrance; two hands opening from a fist.

"Thank you," Bey said, looking down at the sea.
