Picking up starfish

Thursday, May 05, 2011

If you haven't read that old story- you should. My morning begins with a walk on the beach with my girls. My walk fulfills a number of objectives, including exercise (and the multiple health benefits) for me and the dogs- And maybe more importantly, a way to feel centered, connected and to clear the cobwebs (my grand daughter would call it "stucky") of life and work from my head. On some mornings, i am presented the opportunity of finding beach treasures- like this morning, a plethora of starfish. As I pick them up and throw them back, I think of my husband (the scientist) saying "they probably won't survive" which to me means EXACTLY "they possibly will". Some are now 4 legged or have been picked at by the birds- but you can see they are making a path towards the water, very slow- but in the right direction as the water. There are so many parallels to life- I could go on and on- but instead, I hope others will make their own decisions; should you take the second to help a little?
