Sunday Ease

Even though we have become a secular society where Sunday’s are no longer “God’s” day of rest, where businesses are forced to remain closed and family time is a requirement (boy do I remember how boring a Sunday could be as a child, quoting Morrissey as an appropriate reference “Everyday is like Sunday, everyday is silent and grey” because that is exactly how it felt, dull, grey, and boring; lazing around all day trying to amuse oneself with play and fascination). Anyway, I digress…

As an adult, I find that I still hold onto those lazy Sunday’s as a way of life, a space for letting go, and connecting to what matters and to those I love. I consciously take it slow on a Sunday. It’s become a way of life. It is a day that I reserve solely for myself and for things that matter to me. It is my day of rest.

How about you, how do you spend your Sunday? -tM

Simple Sunday's

No matter where you are in the world, what your class status is, or economic situation tends to be, Sunday mornings carry with them a  universal ease. There is a feeling of letting go, a permission to slow down.

Even Morrissey wrote a song about how slow, silent, and grey Sunday's could be. That is a feeling I could relate to as a child, when everything shut down in this city of ours and we were left with the importance of one another.

It clears away the chaos of the week, and let's us reboot.

And that is the charm of Sunday's, time just be, with yourself and those you love.

Happy Sunday. -tM
