Pardon My Zen Moment


If you are in the moment, you are in the infinite.

My dears,

I'm feeling the need for a bit of time away from the computer to recharge, revitalize and reinvigorate my body and soul. A seven day fast from technology, so to speak. I've decided to combine this with an annual spring cleaning, courtesy of Alejandro Junger's "Clean" regime -- no caffeine, red meat, dairy, sugar, processed foods, wheat, gluten or soy. Some old habits need to be broken and new ones set in place.

I will make the most of the time I am gone and return next Monday eager to share, listen and catch up with everyone.

Kerry said...

I applaud your resolve. I hadn't heard of the Clean program but am intrigued...please do let us know how it works.

donna baker said...

You are tough as nails. Good luck.

Lucille said...

That sounds a bit headachy, but no gain without pain I know. I might just make some bunting and see if that has similar beneficial effects.

Belly said...

Enjoy your break, I can't wait to hear about it.

Debra said...

A time out can work wonders- I recently took one and felt new energy upon my return. Enjoy your time.

Helena Halme said...

Well my dear, I can see why you selected this regime - I too would prefer any that did not exclude alcohol!

Will look forward to your return, meanwhile, happy tippling.

Lisa,
I applaud you for all of it and no doubt it will inspire many others to take stock. Truly resting and restoring mind and body is something I think most of us fail miserably in our tech saturated and over scheduled days.
Rest & recharge!
~Rebecca

Mu timing is a little out, I have just come across your blog, it's fabulous ! Take a good rest & look forward to catching up with your next post xx

Pimm's and Lemonade said...

I am so glad you are taking a little break even though we will miss you here in our virtual neighborhood. Peace to you.

A Super Dilettante said...

My dears, my thoughts are with you. I hope that you have found a relaxing solitary period away from the internet. While the internet and its community (Facebook, Blogs) are good to interact with every now and then, it's important to take some time out to connect with people in one's immediate surrounding, and above all, to nourish one's soul with silence and meditation. Pardon me for the Buddhist talking!

VictoriaArt said...

Go for it! Enjoy the habit building! Miss you already!

Maryam in Marrakesh said...

Dearest L,
I am so so envious of your ability to cleanse. I so terribly need to do the same thing. But giving up caffeine? Oy, pains me to think about it.

I thought about you because I posted a few pics of my embroidery-inspired tent on my blog. You, of course, because you are the only other girl I know who loves embroidery as much as I do.

love,
Maryam

Taking the lead among the ever growing list of

vapecartridges is the the
dank vapes

Cartridges for good reason. The leading benefit for

vaping weed using Dank Vape Cartridges or
dank carts

is that it’s a healthier alternative to smoking flower,

as vapor doesn’t release the tar and carcinogens created

during combustion (the process of burning flower).
