A Well earned rest!

Not much to post just now. We are away on holidayand relaxing. The birds and squirrels are almost in the lodge! We have a woodpecker residing just behind our lodge wich is great.

It is not always posible to have a holiday (one thing the cost of it!), but taking a bit of 'time out' is vital these days. even if it is just a trip to somewhere local (a park/museum/gallery/hill/etc). Just to give yourself a chance to step back from everyday life and think, and to take a breath.

Last year and this year (so far) have been 'less then ideal'! for me.When I think back to last year and the number of asthma attacks I had that lasted a few hours, and I didn't know what they were! I thought I had a chest infection.

So a short post this time. Try and 'take a breath'. I will leave you with htis poem:

 

Leisure

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this is if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
