Rest is not idleness...

...and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.

Nice sentiment, John Lubbock (English Biologist and Politician, 1834-1913)

However, lying on the grass today, I would sink without trace into a quagmire...


...the sound of water wouldn't be a murmur but that of slashing rain...


...and the clouds wouldn't be floating but ominous and threatening...


...so I don't think I'll bother...

...if it's all the same to you.
