"Of course it is, in one sense."
Anne Morrow Lindbergh's meditations on life in relation to the sea. The sentence before is, "The search for outward simplicity, for inner integrity, for fuller relationship--is this not a limited outlook. Of course it is, in one sense. Today a kind of planetal point of view has burst upon mankind."
From Gift From The Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh.
I tend to do everything quickly, headfirst. That's how I am with reading. I want to find a book that sucks me in and keeps me throttled in its grasp until the last page...where I'm left wanting more. This book is completely different than my other reads. It's peaceful, contemplative and beautiful. It's a tiny book - but it's taking me much longer to finish. I finished Pillars of the Earth in 2.5 days. This one, I'm savoring and meditating...I like to sit still and find peace.
