Best of '09: Day 8

Moment of Peace

Without a doubt, my best moment of peace this year was, in reality, a week's worth of moments: my trip to Maine this summer. I spent a week enjoying life instead of constantly putting out fires and responding to whatever comes my way. I had very limited access to internet and t.v. I napped whenever I felt like it. I laughed. I read, if I remember correctly, five books. I swam. I played ping pong. I played Pictionary. I laid in a hammock. It was blissful. It was the first time all year that I felt like I was truly relaxing. Time felt like it was moving at a different pace. I remember thinking on more than one occasion, This is true happiness.
