It is by no means a waste of time to rest quietly under a canopy of leafy orchard trees during a hot summer's day. As birds flutter in the branches and clouds pass swiftly overhead - morphing from puffy cumulus plumes to wispy cirrus vapors - I find myself drifting in thought and contemplating a feeling of insignificance to the greater beyond. A calming peacefulness passes over me while I ponder this perspective. I am learning to relish quiet moments in nature. Taking time to live life inspires our creative spirits.
Find time "to do nothing" this summer....it yields very many benefits.
