July, in my twelve monthly themes, is the month of rest.
One of the things I’ve noted about several of the birds which frequent my garden, is that they often find a place to perch.
Most of the time they are flying around, or running around, looking for food, carrying it back to the nest, and so on. But from time to time, they just sit.
So, I’m wondering…..where are your favourite perches?
Where do you like to pause, or take a “time out”?
Whether it’s to just sit still for a little, in order to be better able to see the world, or whether it’s to just settle your mind and your emotions so you can slip out of reactive mode and into responsive mode, I think it’s invaluable to have these pauses in life.
If you’re not in the habit of taking them, this would be a good month to start.
