Mega talented Broadway writer/star of the Tony award winning show, Hamilton, Lin Manuel-Miranda has said the show was born when he went on vacation. Having the down time to relax, recharge, and reboot got his creative juices flowing and he is now a true phenomenon.
We humans grow and thrive when we are well loved, well rested, well fed and make the time for novelty.
New experiences open the heart, expand the mind, and feed the soul….
When we allow ourselves the time and space to create new, beautiful moments, there is space for magic to happen.
And, when you do this with loved ones, beautiful moments of bonding natually occur.
We just had an amazing two weeks of adventure. First we went to Israel for our God-son, Zak’s Bar Mitzvah in Jerusalem at the Western Wall with a small group of family and friends.
Then we spent a week in Italy with our dear friends who live near Venice. Besides having tons of fun, it was deeply relaxing and also stimulating to my creativity.
…Everywhere we went, our senses were treated to new sights, smells, sounds, textures and expecially tasty, yummy food.
I will soon return home renewed and ready to adopt a more languid, artistic lifestyle where I can do less yet accomplish more thanks to this break from my go, go, go routine.
Even if you can’t take a vacation this summer, please try to find a few hours a week to explore locally and have a mini “stay-cation.”
Wishing you love, laughter, and magical kisses,
