S-L-O-W-I-N-G down…

We are a hurried people.

For fast-acting relief, try slowing down. ~ Lily Tomlin

Do you have a hard time putting a halt on your busyness?  I’m not sure why it’s so difficult for me to kick back and take it easy, but it is.  Seems I need a week’s vacation just to prepare for vacation!

So, thanks to the generosity and caring of Woman on Fire Lisa Umberger Arundale, I’m going to truly stop and be quiet.  I’m going on a silent retreat for three days of our two-week vacation.

Have you ever done that?  If so, I hope you will share your experience.

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

No computer, no husband, no kitty, no schedule, no talking (no one’s gonna believe that last one!).

Just me, a picnic basket of fresh food, and magazines and books I’ve been eager to luxuriate in — including Woman on Fire Tama Kieves’s Inspired & Unstoppable and Whitney Johnson’s Dare Dream Do.

Sensing my struggle for time for myself, Lisa offered me her lovely vacation home in the woods overlooking the most beautiful meadow — and only a few miles away from my own home.

She’s left watercolors and brushes to paint in the garage and tea in the kitchen. I get to do whatever in the world I want — or not!

(Even though I hesitated being away during our vacation from my husband Rob, no one could be more supportive of my silent retreat.  He’s even offered to provide drive-by, drop-off meals and spider-removal service should I need it! So sweet.)

Slow down and everything you are chasing will come around and catch you. ~ Eddie Cantor

I can’t wait to see what catches me!  And share my retreat adventure highlights with you.

May you find your own special peace and quiet as summer comes to a close.
