It is so relaxing to be present. I found myself almost anesthetized when next to this little lake in Wisconsin last week. I think vacations away where we can just BE are good for the brain.
The swans were such a treat to see on our running path, they kept me going back daily to check on them. We were even treated with 6 or 7 cygnets!
“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” I can’t find who said that but I am refreshed and inspired to integrate living more into my life now. It is well worth the 18 hours on the road each way.
