Leaving Time Behind and a Do Nothing Day
I love this clock. Believe it or not, it hangs in my bathroom. There something about looking at the time on this clock that makes time seem so elegant, slow and simple. I love looking at time on it.
This clock hangs above the fireplace in my great room. It's really big. It use to be a dark rusty brown until I handed David the spray paint and he "made light of the time." I love how the scrolly pieces in the middle gently "mark the time" and remind me to make "light" of every situation.
This piece hangs in the Friend's Entrance to my home. I have a side porch that all our friends use and it opens to a little room where they can leave their shoes, their cares and their worries behind. This clock reminds me that I should always make time for friends as they are such a blessing and a gift in my life.
Sometimes though.... I like to be like the bunnies and just "leave time behind" and have myself a "do nothing day." A day to just piddle around the house, visit on the phone with friends, or visit a new blog in a far off land that let's me take an adventure. A day to dream, to be inspired, to wish. A day of nothing but me.
Yes... time is good, but sometimes it's even better to leave time behind and do nothing with the day except be.
This week IGF time spent the way I want it to be spent
