Labor Day Rest

Labor Day was originally observed as a tribute to trade and labor organizations.  Now, most of us consider it a day of rest before our Fall schedules kick in, life speeds up, summer ends, and we pull the heavy clothes out of the closet.

 So, in the spirit of the day, I offer a quote from John Lubbock, an English biologist,  “Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”

…and I include a few of my favorite photos from the walk that my daughter Jenny and I took Saturday in the Chicago Botanic Garden (with no deep psychological meaning, analysis or commentary)
