Respite: November Days of Gratitude

I have to make this quick. We are pressed for time as we’re trying to leave early so as maybe to avoid traffic.  Who am I kidding? We’re leaving Southern California and I don’t know if there is ever a good time to avoid traffic here.  It’s getting that way in the Bay Area, too, but we can chat about that another day . . .

Today I am grateful for weekend get-aways, downtime, lazy-days . . . a little battery recharge.  We were lucky enough to come to Newport Beach for the long weekend, where it was a beautiful 70-80 degrees during the day.  We walked on the beach, ate good food, and mostly relaxed.  We had a dose of beach and sun, flowers and birds, and koi ponds with fish.  And finally, last night, I was able to catch the sunset.

Whether it’s a fancy trip to a resort, a camping trip in the forest, or just time to gaze at the clouds, my wish is that everyone gets their share of respite. It’s how we get moving again.
