Cover of "Katherine Hepburn (Movie Icons)...
Cover of Katherine Hepburn from one of her movies…. classic, amazing

After yesterday’s post i realized i need to talk about taking down time.  Down time is essential.  Whether it is walking in the park, or taking a hot shower… whatever you find recharges your batteries, and refreshes your soul… take time to do it.

My most favorite way of just taking that deep breath, and break from the action is to make a big cup of some lovely tea, turn on an old movie and slouch down in the couch with at least one dog on lap and hubby also enjoying the movie.  We love old vintage movies… Clark Gable, Humphrey Bogart, Katherine Hepburn… and the like.  And immersion into an age gone by.

John White Alexander: The Manuscript scribes (from the cycle “The Evolution of the Book”) Library of Congress (Jefferson Building), Washington, D.C. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)  – i picked this photo because he is physically holding a book.

I also love reading… actually holding a book in hand, and sinking my imagination into it…. and getting lost in another place for a time.

Whatever you love to do to exhale, to relax, and to recharge your batteries… schedule time, and just go for it.
