Oh, the productivity trap. We have all been told that lie. We're trained to constantly strive for something, fill our time with being useful, make progress, work hard. These things are not bad in itself but so often when we do stay still, we feel less worthy for doing so. And that's where the issue lies. We are not less worthy for doing less. Even nature pauses every winter. So are we invited to stay still here and there. Thank you for your words.

Dear Vera,

I'm so glad to read you three are safe and sound in Turkey.

It must have been a very hard decision to take and yes, with no doubt, I think you deserve a rest now.

Looking forward reading more of you here.

So glad to hear you’ve made it safely to your destination and are with your boys again. I hope you can rest physically and mentally and that you find a little peace in this next chapter of life (publishing pun not intended!) X
