Books -

This home is filled with books.  I begin reading A Walk on the Beach by Joan Anderson.    She meets a wonderful woman, Joan Erikson, on the beach, who becomes her guide.  Joan Erikson was wife of Erik Erikson, a pioneer in psychoanalysis.

Joan Anderson summarizes the philosophy of Joan Erikson in these words.

    Welcome each day like a good meal.

    The essence of a life well digested comes from knowing your strengths, overdosing on the senses, and remaining active and playful.

    Keep your hands on the plow - push - don't ever stop pushing.

    Always be willing to give a little more energy - the tension should always be there.

    Then your life will never go limp.
