It's That Time of Year. . .

Amidst the hustle and bustle, I hope you find time to relax and enjoy winter break. Others say it better than me, so read below:


How beautiful it is to do nothing, and then to rest afterward. ~Spanish Proverb


Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop. ~Ovid


For fast-acting relief, try slowing down. ~Lily Tomlin


There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want. ~Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes


Don't underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering. ~Pooh's Little Instruction Book, inspired by A.A. Milne


There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them. ~Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
