“I walked far down the beach, soothed by the rhythm of the waves, the sun on my bare back and legs, the wind and mist from the spray on my hair. Into the waves and out like a sandpiper. And then home, drenched, drugged, reeling, full to the brim with my day alone, full like the moon before night has taken nibble of it; full as a cup poured up to the lip. There is a quality of fullness that the Psalmist expressed: “My cup runneth over.” Let no one come- I pray in sudden panic- I might spill myself away!”

–Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea
