Lindbergh, Anne Morrow "Gift from the Sea" - 1955
This book has been described as "a meditation on the meaning of a woman's life or a woman's reflections on life, its stages, and its states, comparing them with the natural treasures of life in the sea."
It's a nice little book to meditate and think about where your life is going.
From the back cover:
"A modern-day classic: here are Anne Morrow Lindbergh's elegant and wise meditations on youth and age, love and marriage, solitude, peace, and contentment, as she set them down during a brief vacation by the ocean.
She helps us to see ways to reconcile our most deeply personal needs with obligations to family, friends, lovers, and work, ways to separate loneliness from replenishing solitude, and ways to find solace in the simplest of daily tasks.
Gift from the Sea is marked by a greatest and simple wisdom, lifting listeners out of the rush and worry of daily life and opening a path to inner peace and self-realization."
