Floating Along


"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time."

~ Sir John Lubbock 1834-1913

Great thought for the day.... It seems I need to be busy every minute or I don't think I'm productive... Rest is a very good thing.

Have a great day..

Blessings,
Spencer

You bring back memories with this post.
As a boy we used to lie on our backs and try to see the clouds as objects, and we would describe to each other what we saw. Ohhhhh the memories.

Wonderful point to consider in that quote!

Those are beautiful clouds with that blue sky behind them.

Truer words were never spoken. I totally agree! :-)

Those moments are essential!

There's just something about cloud watching that seems to melt all your cares away. Such a beautiful blue sky too!

Miriam said...

What a timely reminder! Especially since if I'm looking at the clouds it means I'm NOT looking at the garden and all the chores waiting to be done!

I could spend hours watching fluffy clouds passing through azure blue skies.
