"As we come to the summer, I want to encourage you to think about the holiday you may be taking. I believe part of the art of being on holiday has to be a deliberate attempt to down tools, to step away from our technologies and simply be present. Having been ‘created from the earth’ an essential part of our re-creation should be to reconnect with that founding substance of the earth."
~From The Art of the Holiday, by Kester Brewin
I realize this quote comes toward the end of summer, but with the hot weather just reaching Ontario now - and a long weekend in the not-too-distant future - I figure now's as good a time as any to post the inspiration.
Personally, our recent vacation to Ontario's north was well suited for putting down the tools and "reconnecting." It's amazing how much dial-up internet can help with that ;)
