the gem of rest

piglets sleeping – Roy’s Glen, Scotland
the gem of rest

Rest before you’re tired

Eat before you're hungry

Drink before you're thirsty

Sage advice for the skier on the snowy slopes
so she stays strong and doesn’t slip and fall.

Otherwise, the eating thing, well, it makes 
me full and feel fat. 

And the drinking thing, just makes
me need to pee too many times a day – I get
tired of pulling my pants down and up again. 

The rest thing, now that’s truly a gem, like a 
piece of jade gently nourishing me.
