Sometimes they sing sweetly, sometimes they lock horns. When they lock horns too often, it means we all need a time out. There are many ideas around what a time out is. For us, it is literally time out. For all of us. Our last excursion when the sun began to visit was Point Reyes.
Out of the house, out of the loop, out of the craziness that life has become. Off the grid and into nature is what a time out is. Point Reyes provided the perfect backdrop to be literally off the grid and unwind. Out at Drakes Beach there was a payphone: a real live analog ground line. The sign next to it was quite an amusement. I’m torn between which free call option I like best: Receive God’s Blessings, Help Finding a Job, or that Chase Bank was the option listed first.
These time outs have been the most effective medicine to unpeaceable behaviors. I am also finding that as these time outs routinely find their way into our family rhythm, the locking of horns is a less frequent form of release.
What are your habits at home that help tame the bull?
See you soon!
