A Quiet Kind of Positivity
I was just reminded that I have 16 vacation days to use up before the end of the year. Eep! How did that happen?! Well, blowing out my knee meant I didn’t go away at all this summer, usually my prime time for excursions.
No rolling vacation days into next year. It’s use ’em or lose ’em, baby, so I’m using them—one of them, anyway—to take a long weekend. My plans? Not much. I had knee surgery last month (ACL reconstruction) and am still not up to my usual hyperkinetic level of activity. That’s OK, though. I’m happy to just relax and recharge.
I guess you could say I’m looking for a quiet kind of positivity, like I get from one of my new favorite blogs, Elephantine, by the multitalented Rachel Ball of Seattle. There’s a sense of stillness and wonder to her photos (that’s one of her gorgeous shots to the right) that always leaves me feeling peaceful yet inspired. A great feeling, don’t you think?
Here’s to a weekend of quiet, peaceful positivity...
