Wasting Time


“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”
~ John Lubbock, The Use Of Life

This is a photo of Mount McKinley in Alaska that I took when we were in Denali National Park in the beginning of July.  I was on vacation with my family. We did a short tour on land and then spent 6 days on a cruise down the inside passage.  What a wonderful way to spend a summertime vacation.  I do not normally like to go away for more than a week because my mind keeps telling me that I need to be at work.  This year we were gone for almost 2 weeks!  We had many days on the cruise ship where were just idle: watching the ocean, looking for whales and eagles, watching the glaciers and ice floating in the water -always in awe of all of the beauty that surrounded us.  I hope that you had some wonderful experiences this summer as well.  If not, no worries, there is still time!  Go sit by the river, or the lake, or take a day trip to a park and watch the clouds float by.  It will definitely “by no means (be) a waste of time.”
