So true! I am working on this...
I just came across Lindbergh's book and I am very excited to read it. Have you heard of it? There is a great series of posts on the book here.
While on vacation on Florida's Captiva Island in the early 1950s, Lindbergh wrote this essay-style work taking shells on the beach for inspiration, and reflecting on the lives of Americans, particularly American women, in the mid-twentieth century. She shares her meditations on youth and age; love and marriage; peace, solitude and contentment during her visit.
Have a great weekend!
