Those of you who sing will recognize the importance of those spaces in between the notes. Officially called “rests,” they are the silences that give the music its flavor.
Rests vary in length, but they eventually come to an end; always. The tempo, the rhythm, the melody return and the music they create together continues. Still, rests are vital to the overall performance. Imagine a piece of music with no rests!
And so it is in life. Whether it’s an afternoon rest (siesta, as some call it) or a six month break from blogging, taking a break helps one (certainly it helps me) refresh.
Thank you for hanging out as I took this much needed
spring break these past two many months. I thoroughly enjoyed my sabbatical and return today with a new sense of direction and purpose.
Just what I wanted to do. More on that as the weeks go on.
How about you? How are the rests in your life? Do you resent them or welcome them in?
