treasures











































...One is forced against one's mind, against all tidy resolutions, back into the primeval rhythms of the sea-shore....One becomes, in fact, like the element on which one lies, flattened by the sea; bare, open, empty as the beach... then, ...the mind wakes, comes to life again. Not in a city sense-no-but beach-wise....One never knows what chance treasures these easy unconscious rollers may toss up, on the smooth white sand of the conscious mind; what perfectly rounded stone, what rare shell from the ocean floor....But it must not be sought for or-heaven forbid! -dug for....The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient....Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith.

Thank you for your comment on B&G. I like your shots. Here is my email (redaktion@balkon-garten.de), maybe you are interested in publishing in the next issue with the topic "flowerchild"?
But we are a non-profit magazin...
like to hear from you
