“I break up through the skin of awareness a thousand times a day, as dolphins burst through seas, and dive again, and rise, and dive.”
-Annie Dillard, An American Childhood (1987)
How many of our waking hours do we spend actually “aware?” This is a beautiful analogy, I can just picture the dolphins playing, experiencing the freedom and joy that is theirs with every magnificent dive into the beautiful ocean. That same joy is ours, as well. We just need to break up through that skin of awareness and experience it!
