Hey there! I just returned from a week of rest and relaxation in the mountains. I took time to soak in natural hot springs, meditate, get a massage, read, and eat better. I also took a break from the computer, cell phone, meat and alcohol, and went deep with veggies. The meat vacation continues. :-) When I had the idea to take the time off, I kind of felt guilty about it. All these excuses came to mind--especially "there's too much work to do, I can't afford to take the time." I'm so glad I fought off those excuses!
As I relaxed and let go, I started to notice things like the color of the leaves on the trees, reflections of light on the water, the gentleness of the deer passing through camp. I saw the past and the future dissolve away, leaving only the present moment. It was awesome!
I'm back in the mode of planning and songwriting again, and feelin' fresh!
