fill your glass with wine and listen to Francoise Hardin. for your perfect Sunday

take the time to talk to the elderly lady next door, to read a book, to walk to work instead of riding the subway when it’s a beautiful day. take the time to escape for a weekend with friends.

call your grandmother on her birthday and rinse your hair with cold water just like she taught you, listen to your children, breathe deeply, take the time to make fresh-squeezed orange juice for breakfast, to go to a museum, to go for a stroll in the woods and to listen to the sounds of tiny creatures in the grass. in the summer, take the time to compile a scrapbook of pressed flowers with a child, to read him a story.
take the time to take time because nobody else will do it for you /../
