The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient.
To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but lack of faith.
Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches.
Patience and faith.
One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach
waiting for a gift from the sea.

A Gift From the Sea
This past month has been a challenge.
I have watched Kenny walk thousands of miles
in his inability to sleep.
Medicines have had reverse effects on his system.
I have had to be patient, and never lose hope.
The hospital staff has been amazing.
They have supported Kenny.
They have supported me.
They have listened.
I have listened.
I am waiting patiently
for my gift from the sea.
