Letting Go of Time

237.Jack'sBreakfast

My husband making a delicious breakfast, whilst I was obviously drawing!

I had a lovely weekend; you want to hear what I did? Nothing- not exactly nothing, but nothing productive and I’ve got to tell you it felt fine! I sat around in my jammies until nearly noon, ate delicious food, participated in tea time and cocktail hour. I sketched on my iPad while listening to podcasts half the day. Played games and listened to music with my family. It was wonderful. Nothing was checked off my to-do list, and it was good, very good. I’ve talked with you about this before, about how time bends when we go out to our getaway house in the Redwoods. It’s so important to do and so hard to make happen in the regular flow of life. For me it takes getting away. I can’t seem to let go of time when I’m at home. There are always lists, and plans and expectation of accomplishment. If I don’t allow for days that bend ­– days for sitting and staying – the rest of life becomes overwhelming, frayed and frazzled. So here’s hoping you can let go of time soon and find a way to make time bend, I highly recommend it.
