  • I had my head full of plans.

    I arrived at the beach and walked from here to there and from there to here...actually until the soles of my feet came up with blisters...and I still kept walking.

    Walking - and especially along a beach - makes my thinking better.

    Walking I again realized that most things are not very important. I am not important.

    This is a good thing to realize while walking, because you feel so free!

    I changed all my plans.

    I pushed them deep into the fine sand.

    My plans were not important.

    I am much lighter now
