A Time to Rest

Oftentimes in music, songwriters forget one of the most important components of a song, which is rest. You have to give the music and lyrics room to breathe.  The rest, makes the  melody and lyrics more powerful.
I sometimes forget that. Jilda and I both have been programmed from birth that we can rest when we're dead. I've heard both our mothers say those words when they were alive. (They're both resting now.)
http://truthfall.com/tag/dna-database/When our mothers were healthy, they never had idle hands. There was always something to be done.
Since I retired, I've tried to reprogram my self. Straighten out those gnarly kinks in my DNA.

We walked early this morning, and afterwards I made my world famous blueberry waffles. It's a treat we don't enjoy enough.
After breakfast I fed the critters and did a few quick chores, and we spent the rest of the day resting.
It's something we rarely do. But like with music, I think the rest made us both stronger, more powerful.
Y'all have a great week.
