It’s a snow day today and I am grateful for yesterday, when on my way home from the Cape Sharpe hike I stopped at the beach near Partridge Island. The tide was receding. And all I did was listen, give in to the rhythm of nature … and breathe.
I was reminded of that moment today while reading a passage by Mark Nepo in The Book of Awakening: “…to be accepting of the life that comes our way does not mean denying its difficulties and disappointments. Rather, it means that joy can be found even in hardship, not to be demanding that we be treated as special at every turn, but through accepting the demand of the sacred that we treat everything that comes our way as special.”
Friday blessings to everyone! Best wishes, Anna
