Back after my digital break. A couple of times a year, I feel the need to switch off completely and find that the summer holidays and the festive season are perfect times for doing so.
2013 ended in a particularly hectic way and both my body and soul were craving rest and contemplation. A lovely family Christmas in Switzerland, a relaxed trip to Cologne with Sexy Hubby and chilling out at home with the computer not getting a look in provided just that. A long meditation and an extended back stretching session happened more or less every day, but so did catching up on series and films. I read solely in German, but also slept like in my teenage years. I did a lot of thinking, but a fair amount of indulgent eating too. And I found that this was just the right combination in the current circumstances.
No New Year resolutions or firm plan have been written down, but I do know what I want to pursue this year and what will be left behind. My experience is that forcing things to happen simply does not work, so I will just explore the many possible avenues and see where they lead me.
