The body sticks to the facts. -Alice Miller, The Drama of the Gifted Child
When the funds are low and the debts are high And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
-John Greenleaf Whittier
The fire in our community continues. Two weeks now it has been burning; people are getting tired. Experts on hypervigilance suggest that we make room for rest time, to not feel guilty when needing just to "veg out" on the sofa. There are still lots of wonderful summer activities going on in Durango that could use your attendance, and you might be well served with taking a break.
What does my body (and mind) need in these days of increased stress?
