GIFTS FROM THE SEA"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."
~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh
This book takes on a whole new dimension when read while on the beach, rows of collected sea shells on the edge of my blanket.
