Inspire-ME Monday #1: RESTING

Today I am unveiling a new feature on the blog: Inspire-ME Monday!

As you know if you have read my Blogger Bio (see right) I am a collector of quotes and photographs. For the past few weeks I have been trying to come up with a way to share more of both with YOU, my fabulous readers. Inspire-ME Monday is it!

Every Monday I will be posting a series of quotes along with a photograph I have taken. Some weeks the quotes will have a common theme; other weeks they will be a totally random selection of my current favorites.

Starting today I am also taking a one-week break from the "business" of writing and indulging in a little "pre-summer vacation" vacation. (If you are a parent with kids about to be out of school for the summer, you know what I mean ;) So the theme for this week is RESTING.

Here are some of my favorite quotes about taking a REST:

"Not by anxious use of outward means had Buddha unveiled the True Mind and ended suffering, but by resting quietly in thoughtful silence." --Jack Kerouac, from the book "Wake Up"
 ~  *  ~ 
"DO BE DO BE DO" --Amit Gosmawi, PhD, from the documentary, "The Quantum Activist"
~  *  ~
"Sometimes...the most urgent thing you can possibly do is...take a complete rest." --Ashleigh Brilliant
~  *  ~ 
"Daydream more; work less." --Caeriel Crestin, from his horoscope column in MauiTime
~  *  ~
"Physiologically we were meant to be restful with periods of activity, not active, active, active, with periods of rest." --Dr Mark Dunn
~  *  ~
"This is the Zen approach: nothing is there to be done. There is nothing to do. One has just to be. Have a rest and be ordinary and be natural." --Osho
~  *  ~
"How beautiful it is to do nothing...and then rest afterwards." --Spanish Proverb
~  *  ~
