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.
