"Sit quietly, doing nothing. Spring comes and the grass grows by itself." - Zen Proverb
043 - Recess
Winter is a beloved time for rest. This comes not as a physical rest as prior cultural systems operated, but as an opportunity to reset. The pressure to get out and do is turned down for awhile, allowing you to hole up in the shop and work through half-finished projects, learn techniques, tinker with a new idea. Winter is a beautiful time to better yourself for yourself, even if that means all you do as the cold blows by outside is sit quietly, doing nothing, in no hurry for Spring at all.
