A friend sent this poem to me and I wondered if you might appreciate. Take the time to stand and stare there's always something to amaze. I'd like to say if only to look at the clouds but no small thing for me as they give so much pleasure!
Take a year off
let the field grow back.
growing is not always about pushing, striving
sometimes it is about waiting until conditions are right
letting the potential bide its time
just because something lies fallow does not mean it is dormant
the grass growing under your feet does not mean that one day there won't be flowers
it really depends on your point of view
lay back your weary head and let the dark earth support you
you will grow back
the field will grow back
but for now
take that year off
