Gift from the Sea, by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
This book is a timeless work of art and a meditative journal on life. I did not realize it was written many decades ago until I finished the last page and read the author's biography (clueing in simultaneously to her well-established historical prominence). She wrote with grace and clarity. In spite of a full family life, she managed to find pockets of time for solitude and reflection. I took inspiration from her profound insights, written during extended and meaningful excursions to the beach.
