Returned a window sill of stones to the beach this afternoon. At the time of discovery each one held some special meaning, now I don’t remember specifically. But each served as talisman for something important to me. It’s a challenge to walk the beach and resist the urge to gather its beauty. To have it. Hold it. Keep it.
gather: verb 1. come together; assemble or accumulate 2. take in from scattered places or sources, pick up from the ground, collect as a harvest, collect for food , draw together towards oneself, draw and hold together by running thread through it 3. understand 4. develop a higher degree of 5. summon up (a mental or physical attribute such as one’s thoughts or strength) for a purpose . . . I love the dictionary. Source of captions for the moment. Like this thread of sunlight.
