Rest is not Idleness

Wild Grass

ISO400 135mm f/11 1/400 Edited in Silver Efex

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.
Sir John Lubbock

  1. What is this life if, full of care,
    We have no time to stand and stare.

    No time to stand beneath the boughs
    And stare as long as sheep or cows.

    No time to see, when woods we pass,
    Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

    No time to see, in broad daylight,
    Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

    No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
    And watch her feet, how they can dance.

    No time to wait till her mouth can
    Enrich that smile her eyes began.

    A poor life this is if, full of care,
    We have no time to stand and stare.

  2. I love the quote, after all, if we don’t take time to rest how do we have the energy to create and if we don’t take time to daydream how will we know where to go next! lovely image, I can picture you enjoying a few restful moments laying in the grass watching the clouds roll by!

    • As a society we are constantly moving and don’t seem to take some time to stop and look at the world around us. I like promoting the idea of a lazy day when you have to do nothing and can just relax the mind. Just like all muscles it can’t be strained all the time.
