Time to Do … Nothing

A poor life this, if full of care –

we have no time to stand and stare.

Its August, a time to slow the pace…

 

When was the last time you:

 

Studied a leaf…

 

A flower…

 

A child at play…

 

How about your hands…

 

Or the lines in a loved one’s face…

 

Why not now?

 

And perhaps…

 

Listen to your breathing…

 

Feel the water as it touches your skin in bath or shower…

 

Taste a peach…

 

See a shape in a cloud…

 

Find 5 words that start with “r” that nourish you…

 

Take time to do nothing…

 

And do it well – or not.
