It’s important to take time outs to connect with the slower, rhythmic time of plants and trees, the wind and the rock. To hear just your footfalls on the dirt, to smell the freshness of clear water running, to taste the salt spray. Don’t worry, as you refresh yourself and ground yourself into a larger reality, the wars and struggles go on. You can return to them in a while. This time, taking that cherry blossom or birdsong with you.
