The Power in the Pause

We sell a PAUSE. Mug that sells quite well. I think it’s because pausing is a longing. We really want to, but somehow it seems indulgent or like time wasted. Where would you put it in your schedule?

To me, a pure pause means no movement of mind or body for a period of time. Yoga doesn’t count. Reading doesn’t count. It’s practically impossible to do. I settle for sitting and trying to think about good things, stuff I am grateful for. I also love looking around me, looking, especially from my porch. There is so much to see in the smallest detail.

A pause clears the traffic in your head, makes you feel connected, cleansed, calm. Whatever kind of pause you take, I suggest you take it often. It’s not indulgent. Without them, we are just little old engines on auto pilot. Minds stuffed with things we can’t remember. I am heading to the porch to pause.

…and then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?
