Resolution of the day: REST
I love the idea of Sabbath. Americans now are working (those of us lucky to have jobs, anyway) more hours than the last four generations. Take
time to pause in your life, rest, and just be a human being, instead of a human doing.
Today's quote: “Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time”. --John Lubbock
