As I sit this morning in Flagstaff AZ, where I am visiting with a friend, I rest in cool temperatures and am surrounded by beauty. The sky a brilliant blue, green vines climb the walls, buds are about to burst into color and soft sunlight and shadows mark the ground before me. It’s 114 in Phoenix. I was feeling sluggish and irritable. The days a bit flat. An opportunity was offered for a visit up north and I jumped at it. I’m glad I did….a 2 ½ hour drive, a drop in temperature ~ a shift in perspective and I’m a new woman :)
Summer can be a busy time! It's easy to overdo or get burned out. Yet it’s important to take time for yourself; to refresh, create space and find balance between work, rest and play.
I’m at a local park now. There’s a man sleeping in the grass, a picnic going on and three young twenty something’s playing Frisbee. A young girl close by is reading “Blink” with her hand resting on her forehead and a soft breeze gently ruffles my hair. I take a deep breath and feel a sense of gratitude for being here right now, in this moment.
