newspaper on the beach

I go down to the shore

A poem by Mary Oliver (Thousand Mornings) is best to describe my thoughts and feelings this morning:

“I go down to the shore in the morning

and depending on the hour the waves

are rolling in or moving out,

and I say, oh, I am miserable,

what shall—

what should I do? And the sea says

in its lovely voice:

Excuse me, I have work to do.”
