I'm not very good at the art of rest. My mind is constantly running. What's happening next today, tonight, tomorrow, 6 months from now. Sometimes I need to make a deliberate effort to do nothing. And yes, sitting with a book and drinking coffee on a Saturday morning is nothing. It's an act of rest.
My travel attitude follows the same pattern. I want to see, do, be. At long last, my travel self has slowed down. She enjoys sitting with a coffee, a slice of baklava, or a cup of gelato and just soaking it in. Sitting on a comfy chair writing in her journal. Listening to the music, whether it's a guitar player in a bar or jams on the ipod.
When can we tell ourselves that it's ok to rest. To be. To relax. To enjoy. American culture certainly doesn't push us in that direction.
Rest looks different to each person. Reading a book while drinking coffee might be too much activity for someone else. Or look too much like work.
What does rest look like to you?
A group of bloggers from all over get together on Fridays (or Saturdays) to write for five minutes, unscripted, based on a prompt from Lisa Jo Baker's blog. Feel free to join in the fun.

People watching on the train is always entertaining. On my morning commute it is people going to work and college.
One such college student was rocking her athletic shorts from high school. Where, apparently, she was a Lady Pioneer. I'm pretty sure that when I was playing Oregon Trail there was no distinction between pioneers and Lady pioneers. Everyone had equal opportunity to get a snakebite or die of Cholera.
I'm not sure where the trend of "feminizing" sports teams started. All I know is that it needs to stop.
Lady Knights? Might as well call them the Damsels in Distress.
Lions? The lioness soccer team will go all pride rock on your ass.
And then there's the -ette. I don't care if you buy a small table for your dinette, but don't you dare turn the girls basketball team into the Soaring Eaglettes.
As a kid you are on the girls team. In college you play women's _________ (sport of choice).
No young woman deserves to be a Lady Tigerette.

|The grand finale of the Tuesday night snow shoe tour!|
|Just a little powder day|
Thursday Night Lights - I need to go on a Thursday night for this. There are fireworks and a glow-stick ski down. What's not to like?
Do you have a favorite ski resort? What do you love?
