FROM THE EDITOR'S PEN /
Spring has Sprung /
Each year around this time since 2001, we start
sharing your respite solutions in anticipation of
our annual Summer of Respite campaign.
As we are one season away from our twelfth 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, 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
When did you last take time for yourself and what
did you do?
