Spend time alone

"Smart people spend time alone.  They don't fill their days with appointments from 8am to 10pm, as many politicians and executives do. 
Great science (and great art) does not emerge from hard logic and grinding hours. 
It comes from activities like chopping wood and raking leaves, preparing dinner and reading to the kids. 
These activities soften the rigid pace of the day's pursuits and allow all our God-given intuition to work its unlogical magic. 
Only then can we reach our fullest potentials. 
Only then can we leap from thinking to understanding."
                                            ** Philip K. Howard **

The weekend is here.  Spend some time alone.  Reconnect with yourself.  Listen to your heart, to your own footfalls and your own breathing.  Go quietly.
