Anne Morrow Lindbergh wrote, “And then, some morning in the second week, the mind wakes, comes to life again. Not in a city sense – no – but beach-wise. It begins to drift, to play, to turn over in gentle careless rolls like those lazy waves on the beach. One never knows what chance treasures these easy unconscious rollers may toss up, on the smooth white sand of the conscious mind; what perfectly rounded stone, what rare shell from the ocean floor.” This passage is from Gift from the Sea, one of my all time favorite reads.
It is poignant today as I begin this blog, a new journey. A journey that is to awaken my mind, as well as my body and spirit. A journey that is to allow my mind to drift and see what treasures may be unearthed. A journey that will hopefully bring me closer to a wholeness of mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual balance. So, I present a bucket to carry the treasures we find along the beach as the journey begins.
