After having several days off, now I’m having an “off” day.
My husband and I have just returned from a few days away – we were in Aspen, Colorado, which has to be one of the most gorgeous spots on earth, as evidenced by the photo I’ve posted today.
So good to get away – to breathe in different air, to view the world from another angle, to hear the silence of nature.
We did some hiking – one trail took us up to around 10,000 ft above sea level. It was so peaceful up there, and I find that sort of peace to be a balm to my soul.
You cannot experience that kind of peace anywhere else because it exudes from the earth, the rocks and the trees, and engulfs you in a peaceful embrace.
I highly recommend it for anyone who is going through breast cancer right now – get yourself into a beautiful location for a little while. Breathe in that peace. Your immune system will love you for it.
Now here I am sitting in my office and wishing I was back there. I wasn’t quite ready to leave it.
To make matters worse, at lunchtime today I was cutting up some basil and managed to chop the tip off one of my fingers. That makes typing hard, hence the brevity of this post.
I really should have stayed in the forest.
