I had a great Winter Break! I hope that everyone did as well! I had time to rest, read, think, and visit with people I don’t get to see very often.

There’s an old saying that goes, “It’s all grist for the mill.” I never knew what grist was, but it originally meant grinding in Old English. Everything that goes in gets ground or used. All of the experiences in our lives get ground together and we use it to make connections in ways we hadn’t done before.

Thank goodness for down-time to give us these new ideas to use and play with in our work and studies. I wish you all a very productive week!
