Breathe

I have been following a blog by Ali Edwards for about four years.  It has been a delight to watch her evolve both personally and professionally.  She shares her life and encourages others through a variety of mediums to record theirs.  I appreciate her honesty, her creativity, her vulnerability, her realness.

Today she shared a post on her blog that included a poem by Victoria Erickson.  I loved the simplicity of the poem, the focus on connecting with nature to fill our empty places, especially in a world where it is easy to be distracted by things that don’t encourage our growth, our relationships, or the caretaking of our souls.

I decided to read the poem as my way of sharing it with you.  I hope you enjoy it and that each of you walk your own stretch of ocean.

    1. Thanks Bethany…I must have needed that reminder too…because I read it over and over like a mantra. What I think is interesting is how the world gives us what we need, especially when we aren’t looking for it.

  1. Hi Carey, I’m so pleased to have found your blog and look forward to reading more. I love hearing “Breathe” aloud and thank you for sharing such a comforting poem. Especially fitting for us lucky enough to live in the Pacific Northwest.
