Pause.

Year End always brings a flurry of activity. Planning and shopping for holidays and celebrations with family and friends. Adjusting to the continuing change in weather. Planning end of year business strategies. It is all too easy to feel like everything is spinning!

Pause.

This is my reminder-to-self when I feel inundated: Pause. Take 2 breaths. And then continue. Even better: go sit in the Forest. Breathe in the peace and the solidness of the trees, and the music of the waves and the birds.

Last weekend we enjoyed a Forest Bathing session on a windy, turbulent day. And the rhythm of the wind (as we sheltered on the lee side of the island) was powerful, yet calming.

In particular, I have been marveling at the lovely variety of fungi.  So fun!
