WOW! Today, I am going to Maine. It's a vacation. I will arrive in Portland, ME late tonight. Tomorrow I will be with good artist friend and art gallery owner, Susan Roux. Check out her gallery here. Roux & Cyr International Fine Art Gallery.
Friday, September 5, through Sunday, September 7, I will be in Stetson, ME. After that, it's up for grabs.
Through the restorative power of the Silence, I rest
Rest is essential for achieving excellence in my work and relationships. To be at my best, I must have energy, enthusiasm, and a clear head. Being tired or frazzled reminds me that it is time to recharge my batteries.
When in need of rest, I turn to the restorative power of the Silence. I begin by simply placing my attention on my breath. I set aside any concerns, responsibilities, or tasks, and reconnect with the calm and loving energy of Spirit. As I close my eyes, I become aware of my body and relax each part of it, from my head to my toes. I surrender all of me to the Silence. Its power restores me—body, mind, and soul. I am rested and refreshed.
Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.—Matthew 11:
