Rest, Joy, Peace

Being urban and suburban dwellers we sometimes miss out on some very natural and pleasurable experiences. Like resting in the open air. But it can be done.

When I worked at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC, I took to the habit of going out at lunchtime, onto the National Mall between the Capitol and the Washington Monument, and lying on the grass, under a tree, to enjoy a nap and the cooling breeze.

It was a little scary at first, being vulnerable, but it was also enriching, restful, and peaceful.

Get some rest in the open air, it will do you good!  

If you really want to enjoy it a little longer then this is for you:  

Enjoy yourself more!
