On more than one occasion here I have suggested that you ..and me, that we should slow down and enjoy life. Take time to relax. Well we call relaxing getting up before sunrise, driving over an hour to the coast. Launching our kayaks in clouds of mosquito and getting to see this! Yes that is relaxing...
It also makes the afternoon nap that much more enjoyable!
The famous writer George Washington Sears :(Nessmuk) wrote
"We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, and banks.
This quote seems to fit our lives today more than ever. It is interesting to me that wisdom from the late 1800's is still true today.
