It is always a surprise when late on a dreary gray day the Sun drops below the clouds and lights up the sky. It lifts your heart. The December ocean beach is desolate and glorious. It makes me tune into a force I know is so much larger than myself. And yet I’m here, a small part but connected to all of it. Breathing in the magnificence of the sea never fails to ground me and ally me with my internal life, even in winter.
I hope everyone has a peaceful and safe holiday. I’ll be back with more about the sea next year.
This month I will be donating 10% of my sales to the Sag Harbor Food Pantry who have been lovingly providing food to those in need since 1987.
