This post by my friend Arati makes an important point in an unusual way. Enjoy!
To all the familiar voices expounding
I have to
I don’t have time
It’s gotta be done today
If I don’t no one else will
If I don’t do this it won’t happen…
Watch a sunset or sunrise
through the branches of your favorite trees
or on the horizon beyond ocean
lake or desert
or reflected in the windows of tall buildings.
Have a cup of tea, herbal or black
decaf coffee, or enjoy the caffeine.
A glass of wine … or not.
Take a moment to sit
to stroll barefoot at the edge of the ocean
river or lake
in a meadow or city park.
Chill, as someone I love would say.
Don’t wait until ….
