Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

May I speak of those moments after sunrise, when the mist is rising from the sea and the fog is fingering the canyons of Big Sur? Each day lives before us, guarding out lasting plans for continuity. And the sea, that life-giving support lies quietly below us in its undisturbed immensity.
