It is the second day of September, nineteen days of summer left, it is Labor Day (a national holiday) here in the states, it is raining and I am resting. I pretty much work at one job or another every day of the week during the spring and summer, and to have a day to rest is wonderful. Although, I keep wondering what I might get done if I went on to work. Work is really an addiction and one gets to the point where he feels he must stay busy all the time but that’s really not good. There is no good in working if you can’t sometimes stop and enjoy your accomplishments.Sometimes it is good to just step back and get a new perspective on things. But to step away occasionally and be at peace must be a thing to be cultivated, something to practice. I heard of a soldier who was marching, a long march with full gear, and in the end he was just counting his steps, 1… 2… 3… 4…, no longer thinking, 1… 2… 3… 4…, just marching as if on automatic, 1… 2… 3… 4… I do not want to go on automatic and stop thinking so that’s why rest is so necessary. May you get all the work you need and all the rest you deserve with the reward that comes from each.
