Letting Kindness say hello

I’m staying a few nights in the house of some friends… hanging out with two of their (100?) kids.

Today I spent some time with their dog (Kindness) because she barks at me a lot and I thought she should feel more comfortable.

I sat onĀ  a chair in the grass and read while she sniffed me and ran ’round me and generally got used to my presence.
I think we’re friends now.

We ate lunch together and I had some “Pero” which is this herbal drink I found very delicious. Have you had it?

I like what I read while spending time with Kindness. I just picked up the book Gift From the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh. The last sentence in the first chapter grabbed me ‘One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach- waiting for a gift from the sea.’
I want to take this into the rest of my day because in general I’ve been feeling pretty un-beach-ish.
What gifts lie waiting for me to lie waiting?
