The value of leisure time…

“It has occurred to me that the thing you have, that all men have enough of, is perhaps the thing that you care for the best, and that is your leisure – the leisure you have to think; the leisure you have to be let alone; the leisure you have to throw the plummet into your mind, and sound the depth and dive for things below.”  — James Garfield

Our 20th President was certainly onto something. We all need, in fact thrive on, those opportunities for quiet that help us see beyond the noise and chaos. It is truer now, in our sound-bite driven, connected all the time world.

Have a peaceful weekend.
