Resting Twosome

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time. 
~ John Lubbock
My wish for you today: Take some time to rest, listen to the birds in the trees or the buzzing of a dragonfly, and take a deep deep breath of nature. 
 You will be glad you did!

Beautiful shot! I love that quote, too. I'm going to write that down and save it to remind me that it's perfectly okay to spend some time being still.

Wonderful Kerri.
Too true about laying in the grass by a stream, to hear the water rippling past and the birds song.
