“Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.”

~Chinese Proverb


Rick and I are just back from a weekend getaway.

It’s amazing how refreshed we feel from just a few short days out of our routine. We are ready to once again engage in our respective worlds of work and everything else that seems to keep us stirred up.


We took time to breathe long, nurturing breaths.

We ate delicious food.

We napped.

We laughed.

We explored.

And perhaps most important, we remembered who we are. Who we really are.


How about you?

Is it time for a respite from the world?

Mija, our aging, sweet little earless cat will tell you that you don’t even need to leave home. A cozy bed and a blanket overhead will do nicely.
