Relax. Rest. Repeat.

Me laying and resting on a colorful blue, white, red, and yellow hammock in El Combate, Puerto Rico I want to talk about rest. Why? Because it's not talked about enough.

A box of chocolates. A cute stuffed teddy bear, monkey or elephant. Proclamations of love and sweet poems. Sappy cards or a lovely bouquet of red roses. That's what some of us might expect to get on Valentine's Day, am I right? That is, if you subscribe to the whole idea. If you don't, that's… Continue reading One
