We all need to get away sometimes. “Away” doesn’t have to be somewhere exotic, or some place that involves boarding passes or long car trips. Not even a weekend getaway. Just a respite; a brief time out from the day-to-day routine that provides a recharge, a renewal, or a reset.

Spontaneity is good. Give yourself an unexpected present.

In Other Words…

“When all else fails, take a vacation.” ― Betty Williams

“Books don’t offer real escape, but they can stop a mind scratching itself raw.” ― David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

“Ironically, the only way to see clearly is to stand at a distance. You might be focused, but that doesn’t mean you are seeing correctly. Sometimes, you have you to grab the camera from the idiot taking all the shots in your life because they don’t realize the lens is dirty.” ― Shannon L. Alder

In The Word…

“And he said to them, ‘Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest a while.’ For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat.” – Mark 6:31
