 Away Time

Since 2001, each year around this time, we start sharing your respite solutions in anticipation of our Summer of Respite campaign.

As we are one season away from our seventh Summer of Respite, it occurs to me that respite is like exercise (even if all you do is sit in the yard reading a pot-boiler book). Respite resembles exercise in that the more you do it the better it works for you. So, I got to wondering, just how much are we exercising our respite muscles, anyway?

If you would take a moment to indulge me, the responses just may surprise us all, pleasantly or otherwise.

When did you last take time for  yourself, and what did you do?
