The Front Porch View-June 2019

The Front Porch View June, 2019 ISSUE

 Time for Intermission

We’ve all heard the saying, “an idle mind is the devil’s workshop”.  For the longest while I let that age old expression make me feel a little guilty about doing nothing. I’ve learned though, rest is a wonderful thing and there is nothing evil about it. Rest is necessary. In fact, we need it if we plan to remain productive. Here we are, halfway through 2019 and quickly approaching summer.  Think of June as a good time for intermission.  Take a quick recess from work and enjoy a little nothingness – guilt free.

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.” – John Lubbock
