Vacation. It’s been a lost art for me until this week. 

We’re on our first vacation in two years and it’s clear to me I’ve lost some skills to do it with ease. 

As I awakened this morning, a wonderful realization hit my psyche. I don’t have to be anywhere any time soon. What a concept!  

I’m a morning person, so this is my time to rise and take charge of the day.  It’s a foreign thought most days. Especially during the pandemic. 

One of the many gifts of this period has been rest.  

Beginning a vacation rested is a new thing for me as is my appreciation for slowing down.  

I’m more present, it’s richer and easier.  

I packed more, though I’m lighter.
