My gift from the sea

One of my favorite books to read during the summer is Anne Morrow Lindbergh's "Gift from the Sea," and one of my favorite quotes from that book is the following:

“The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but lack of faith. Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach—waiting for a gift from the sea.”

That is my wish for myself, and especially for all of you who have chosen to take the time to follow me. I wish you patience and faith to see what life brings you. Take the time to enjoy these last few weeks of summer.
