"We are aware of our hunger and needs, but still ignorant of what will satisfy them. With our garnered free time, we are more apt to drain our creative springs than to refill them. With our pitchers, we attempt sometimes to water a field, not a garden. We throw ourselves indiscriminately into committees and causes. Not knowing how to feed the spirit, we try to muffle its demands in distractions. Instead of stilling the center, the axis of the wheel, we add more centrifugal activities to our lives -- which tend to throw us off balance. "

 ~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh Gift from the Sea

I'm writing this in advance, because I'm spending some time visiting my parents this week. Taking a break from life in Pittsburgh and creating space to head to the beach with my momma for a few days. The beach is MY place to replenish... body, mind, and spirit.

Gift from the Sea is one of my favorite books and the passage above, although written over 60 years ago, it still holds true... maybe even more so today in a world of smart phones and 24-hour news cycles.

It's been a difficult lesson for me to learn... maybe it's age... maybe it's a greater awareness of my needs.... but, understanding what satisfies, refills, and balances us is so important.

May you find moments this week (at the beach, or not) that feed you!
