“I’m drawn to places that beguile and inspire, sedate and stir, places where, for a few blissful moments I loosen my death grip on life, and can breathe again. It turns out these destinations have a name:

thin places.”

 Eric Weiner

It was not until a few years ago , when my sister told me about her thin place,…that  I first heard this term.

 She shared with me…a favorite beach she likes to spend time at….where wild horses can be seen running on  the sand… a location she called her thin place.

I immediately  wondered….what is it that makes a place… thin….how does a person know if they have  ever been ….to a thin place??

Is it a place where the… spiritual…the physical ….the mental….and the natural….have  a fine line between them?..

when they are indistinguishable from one another???

Is a thin place….an actual physical location???…or is it a state of mind???

Some have said that a Thin Place… cannot be described with words.

So that got me to wondering….have I ever found myself in a thin place?

…the first thing that came to mind was…

my kayak… paddling all alone…. on the lake or down the creek in my kayak…

Yes…I do believe that is MY thin place.

A place where I can be alone but never feel  alone….where my mind can breath and my body relax… where life as it is ….seems to disappear.

Perhaps that is why I look so forward to the end of a long cold Canadian winter… a chance to once again….return to that place…my Thin Place.

Have you ever been there?

Have you found your….

Thin Place???

I have been invited to take part in an internet radio series about resilience.

I suppose my next post should be about just that…resilience!!

Sam’s Weird Afternoon …book cover ….is to be in a contest from April 1-15th…at Covey Book Cover Awards…and I am asking for your support in voting for my cover…#14…if you think it is eye catching. I will be posting a link at that time to make it simple for all of you to check out.

It will be your votes that help to decide the winning covers,and I believe mine will be in the category of ,Eye Catching….

Think about it ….
