Slowing Down

A  L  O  H  A   from   Honolulu!
" There is enchantment 
right in front of you, 
waiting for you 
to notice. "
                     Janet Luhrs











" Beware the 
barrenness-









- of 
a busy life. "
Socrates








" To do two things 
at once is 
to do neither. "
                Publilius Syrus







" It is important 
from time to time 
to slow down, 
to go away by 
yourself, and 
simply be. "
                Eileen Caddy

Yes, 
with maturity I
 am slowing down.

But it is far from pitiable
for I am FINALLY cured
of my Hurry-itis!

And it's lovely!

Things look different
near the top
of the mountain.

Thank You
for sharing the view,
               Warmly, cloudia

Good Morning, Cloudia! Great post and wonderful quotes.. I agree it is so nice not worrying about hurrying..Have a happy day!

I have never understood why many people consider busyness virtuous and idleness wrong (like taking a nap, or just relaxing). To me, a balance is the best thing, not too much of one or the other!

It's nice to chill and enjoy the scenery, and not be bound by doing. Have a nice day today, Cloudia!

Now that I have retired, I have learned to relax and enjoy life without having to keep time.

One reason to stay busy sometimes is to keep from thinking about a hard life.

... ah the barrenness. Yup, it's there lucking in the bushes when we try to 'do it all.'.

Slowing down is a gift. A gift among many.

I do like the sounds of that idea! Every single second counts in life- enjoy your slowing down, and catch us another lovely golden sunset, and gift us!
