I am fortunate.
For the last two days I have been able to step out of my normal routine and be quiet. Yes, I talked with our neighbor while our dogs played in the field. And, yes I thanked the cashiers at the stores when I went to run errands. But, for the most part I have been quiet. I read a book. I walked in the woods. I ran alongside a mountain stream. I sat and looked out the window…just looking not really thinking about anything in particular.
I don’t know about others or what most people need, but I need time like this.
Time when I get to know myself again.
