Taking Time

Long summer days and warm weather help us slow down, take time, find some moments to “do nothing,” allow our creativity to emerge, and generally give ourselves permission to relax. 

We think our incessant busyness is a modern problem, but apparently not: even Thomas Aquinas (13th century) is quoted as saying, “Pray thee, spare thyself at times: for it becomes a wise man sometimes to relax the high pressure of his attention to work.”
