A walk on the beach

Yesterday I had the best therapy session psychotherapy can provide... a long walk on the beach!

There is something uniquely refreshing about sand between your toes, the warmth of the south Florida sun, and the gentle breeze. Where else can you watch sand pipers chasing the waves, pelicans bobbing for fish, and sea gulls squabbling over leftovers?

I stopped to gaze past the whitecaps and the scattered watercraft to the expanse of the horizon. It's interesting how in one moment you can feel so... small. I remembered a prayer by a Brighton (England) fisherman... "Lord, the sea is so big and my boat is so small."

  1. I pray that you can still feel the sand between your toes and close your eyes and hear and smell the ocean...may this give you moments of peace in the midst all else!! "Count it all joy..."
