Lee of the Land

When the very air we breathe turned against us during the pandemic of 2020 we turned to the sea. Here, we can feel at once free, floating on the water’s surface while protected by the surrounding islands. Navigating familiar waters to the lee of an island brings peace to a troubled mind. The enduring rhythm of the tide and return of migrating sea birds reminds us that the earth’s embrace can heal, if only we recognize its power to do so.
