Rest as engagement, not retreat..

I lay in my bath, at the end of a long-road day, feeling sore and tired, glad to be held by the water. I came to an understanding that what feels restful is often not about feeling 'in retreat'. I feel the support of water across all my limbs, my lower back, my upper back, [...]

I visited Japan in 1996.
