A Year By the Sea

"I must live a little each day, greet the sun as it rises and revel in its setting, swim naked, sip coffee, talk to animals, meditate, laugh, risk adventures. I must try to be soft, not hard; fluid, not rigid; tender, not cold; find rather than seek. I have been embraced by the sea, tested by its elements, emptied of anxiety, cleansed with fresh thought. In the process, I have recovered myself."
~ A Year By the Sea by Joan Anderson

Hello. Oh yes. I read Joan Anderson too. A year by the sea was translated in Dutch some years ago so I read it, and then her later books I ordered it down from USA and read it in 2008. It helped me stepping down from my heavy job and return to the home. I visit her website every now and then.
Thank you Tracy
Have a nice day

Hi Tracy ~
Is this book good? I have seen it at Barnes and Nobles and was tempted.
I always enjoy Anne Morrow Lindbergh's "A Gift from the Sea."

Tracy said...

Laurie, when I had originally read it, it started out a little slow for me. But overall, it was a very inspiring book!
