“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the blue sky, is by no means a waste of time.” ~ Sir John Lubbock, The Use of Life
I recently returned from vacation and this quote ran through my mind every day as I wondered if I was taking too much time away from my work. I got back to New York City refreshed, rejuvenated, and raring to go. Rest gave me confidence, courage, and perspective. Have you taken a break this summer? I whole-heartedly recommend it. It does a body, mind, and heart good.
