For the natural selectivity of the island I will have to substitute a conscious selectivity based on another sense of values–a sense of values I have become more aware of here. Island-precepts I might call them if I could define them, signposts toward another way of living. Simplicity of living, as much as possible, to retain a true awareness of life. Balance of physical, intellectual, and spiritual life. Work without pressure. Space for significance and beauty. Time for solitude and sharing. Closeness to nature to strengthen understanding and faith in the intermittency of life: life of the spirit, the creative life, and the life of human relationships.
— Gift From The Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Mrs. Lindbergh got away from all the hustle and bustle and refocused on the truly meaningful things of life. As leaders, trainers, and teachers we can learn from her example. Look at recreation time as truly re-creation time.
