The fifth stepping stone has been the gift of introspection on board the MV Kennicott ferry. Departing from Bellingham, I was on the US Alaskan ferry for 5 days, taking the Inside Passage to Alaska. Cut off from the distraction of the internet and social media, I was largely alone with my observations of this rugged, pristine landscape, and with my thoughts and reflections. I had the opportunity in slow motion to enjoy the tranquillity of the Inside Passage where water, sky, glaciers, forested coastline and snowcapped peaks meld into mellow, mystical colours.
In my reverie, I marvelled at this amazing, beautiful wilderness, and realised that I have so much to be grateful for, and people that I am grateful to.

Cud for the cow:

How much quiet time do I set aside in my day to reflect on the blessings in my basket?
How do you re-charge your batteries when you feel run down?
What resources or skills do you have to offer your community?
What is your special kind of wilderness – the sea, mountains, river, forests, meadows, wild life, gardens?

Time for introspection
