“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, English Biologist 1834-1913
After a full weekend of baseball games, I woke up Monday morning feverish and coughing. Come Tuesday, I could barely stand up, my head felt like exploding every time I moved.
Rest is good. Sometimes, the body really needs it. Sometimes we need to give in to what the body wants.
Everybody needs a time out.
Rest is good.
I took this photo at Pier 39 in SF sometime April 2011.
