Finding Pause

Constantly bombarded,

Senses overloaded.

Schedules to keep,

No time for peace.

Commitments to mind,

No time to unwind.




Ready for a break

Can’t hardly wait.

No schedule needed,

A time of peace.

Relaxation in mind,

A time to unwind.

    Yay, summer! Either your kids are out of school, or you’re going on vacation. Or, you’re just ready to get some good old fashioned R&R time. That is an interesting looking tree(?)–is it alive?

      The kids have been out of school for a few weeks now, but we are planning a camping trip soon. I need a break! The first picture is of an uprooted tree. I thought the twisted roots described how I feel right now!

    R&R is always great! Enjoy!
    That first photo is exquisite, so much texture.

      Thanks for the compliment on my picture, Suzicate. Your pictures are so great, I take it as a big compliment.

      We all need to step out of the rat race every once in a while. Thanks for visiting, Newwhitebear!

    Nice. I can totally relate. Poem is so appropriate in my cuurent search for some clarity in my career.

    • jannatwrites June 27, 2012 / 8:13 PM

      I hope you are able to step back and find the clarity you’re looking for, Patty. Thanks for stopping by this evening!

    • jannatwrites June 27, 2012 / 8:14 PM

      Oh, it’s past time to get away, Patti! It’s hot, hot, hot with lots of dust and no rain…

    Yes, we all need a break to recharge.

    • jannatwrites July 1, 2012 / 5:24 PM

      A break is always nice. A time to remember about what is good in life!

    YEA! YEA! YEA! (And the twisted tree is the best analogy ever.)
    Although, RC is baffled about the title…she sniffs and says if you’d only look at the end of your arms – there paws is! (maybe she means just drop whatever you are doing and run…I’m not sure…her philosophy is, well, catty…and we don’t dare ask clarification…) Enjoy the adventure! (Wistfully wishing, too)

      I can see why RC is confused about the title, Phil. The mis-spelling of “pause” most have irked her 🙂

      Being unplugged for a few days gave me more time for reading, playing and just being a lazy bum (I really liked that part:))

    Can totally relate! May we all receive this much-needed ‘unwinding’ time.

    • jannatwrites July 1, 2012 / 5:29 PM

      GodGirl, It is nice to get a break…or at least make one up if life doesn’t cooperate 🙂

    Nothing like a vacation to renew you for the tasks ahead — hope you get one soon, Janna!

    • jannatwrites July 1, 2012 / 5:33 PM

      Well, I’m back after a three-day internet (blog?) detox and it feels great, Debbie. I’ll try to pace myself now that I’m back!

    Whew! Can I relate! And I love your animals!!! (I post pics of my animals too on my blog – I just love them!!)

    • jannatwrites July 1, 2012 / 5:35 PM

      Thanks! Animals are like family here in our house (even the cats listen better than the kids :)) I hope you get the break you need 🙂

    Very profound poem stating such a basic human need – solitude and rest.

    • jannatwrites July 17, 2012 / 7:34 PM

      Glad you found a message in the poem. You’re right in that we all need solitude and rest!
