Joy is eating the perfect peach. Those of you who know me well know that I love to eat fruit. Savoring a ripe, sweet, juicy peach is one of life’s greatest delights. For several years, I have had the idea to create a blog called The Perfect Peach. I set this blog up a while ago but haven’t had the time or creative energy to write on it. Now that I am on sabbatical, I thought this would be a great time to invest in this blog.
Sabbatical is, in essence, time set apart to nurture joy. When I think of the sweetness of the peach – its beautiful form, its colorful flesh, its uncontainable juiciness, its earthiness, and its simplicity – I also think of my hopes for this sabbatical time. During the next three months, I hope to live a little differently so that I might cultivate a deeper awareness of life’s simpler elements, create and enjoy beautiful things, and be renewed by tending to joy.
I hope to write on a regular basis about insights I have from savoring the sabbatical life. Join me if you like. I’d love to have some friends be a part of this journey with me.
