"Deep summer is where laziness finds deep respectability." - Sam Keen I love this line. I read it while out at breakfast and just thought, "SERIOUSLY."
We all have hugely different definitions of "lazy", I'm sure of it. And there seems to be a blurry line between laziness and rest. I think that's where rest gets a bad reputation, when truly, it is not laziness at all.
I had this fear today...what if summer passes and I don't feel rested? I refuse to leave these wonderfully hot months behind without being able to recall one single over-the-top lazy day.
So if you are a self-condemning rester (our culture teaches this) for today (or a specific one this week), whatever lazy means to you, cross the line.
It is old fashioned self-respect.
