Shifting gears

Sometimes, when you’ve been busy getting ready for a vacation, it’s difficult to slow down.

This summer, when I was in Eureka Springs in a cabin on a hill, it took me two days to change my pace.

But, one afternoon, I sat on the porch with a good book and enjoyed a cool breeze—and finally a short nap. I didn’t even try to stay awake and keep reading.

Late that afternoon, I knew I had shifted gears. I sat on the porch again with a beautiful view of farms and trees and the river—content—and watched the sun slowly sink behind the hills.

Now, months later, I try to remember that beautiful scene and that feeling of contentment—and stop—and shift gears in the middle of a busy day.
