gifts from the sea

“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.”
~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea

*patience is paying off and I have a bit of exciting news to share… one of my photos was recently chosen to be featured on the app Daily Pics (free on itunes). And in other news, I was recently contacted by the editors of a soon to launched photography website where they plan to feature several of my photos. I will be sure to post the link when they are up and running.
