It feels so good to have this pause. In Yoga it’s called “the pause between poses.” I am cherishing having this time to rest, recover, reflect and just BE. What a treat to be able to bring my kids to school, to take them on mini adventures, to make them dinner. Having missed out on all of this for the past five years, I truly appreciate the experience. I’m also detoxing from the media. I’ve cut off the constant stream of vexing information by tuning out from cable news and removing myself from Twitter, Facebook and other social media with the occasional exception on the weekend. I read The New York Times on the weekend and listen to the NYT The Daily podcast most days, but that’s it. Instead of filling my head with garbage, I’m quieting my mind.
