The Word

peace is when time doesn't matter as it passes by

The mister sent me this quote last week and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. I certainly feel like life has been all zoom zoom zoom the last few months, and correspondingly, peace (and certainly as this definition describes it) is something I’ve really been craving. I’ve been seeking it out in small moments — in a yoga class, on a walk in Central Park — but as the weather turns colder, I can’t help but really look forward to the holidays, when we can slow down, breathe for a moment, and enjoy peace. AKA, a “long winter’s nap.”

In between all the obligations and errands and to-dos that the daily grind brings, how do you create peace in your life?

The Word

i'd rather be a comma than a full stop

One of my favorite lyrics to start off the week, from one of my favorite songs ever. I’m feeling a little under the weather (but still have plenty of work to do), so I decided I’d keep things short and sweet today.

Do anything fun over the weekend? Joe commented yesterday that it felt like we worked all weekend — we spent a lot of time hanging things, unpacking those last few boxes, and I undertook a massive office file organization which took all Saturday afternoon. Always so gratifying, but yeah, you don’t really have time to sit around and watch bad movies on TV (wait, maybe that’s a good thing?).

It’s the last week of August…make it a good one!
