Quote – Leisure – Week #16

Leisure isn’t always relaxation and it’s relaxation that counts.

Written for Marsha’s Writer’s Quotes Wednesdays Writing Challenge #17: Leisure

Brown Pelicans flying behind where we had our beach plot for the day.

Spending time at the beach is a time of relaxation. Leisure isn’t always relaxation, but it sure is great for the mental state. Little Talbot Island State Park does that for me. A day off sitting under the beach umbrella slathered in sunscreen, watching the birds fly over, closing your eyes listening to the waves crash upon the shoreline transforms the busy mind of the day to day and takes you to a place of euphoria.

I was slumped in my beach chair when I took this photo.

A Life of leisure and a life of laziness are two things.

I’m still working when I’m in my leisure time because I’m always on the lookout for the next awesome bird! Birding is my hobby, but photography is my life. It takes a good balance to be happy in work and play.
