Rest days are essential to any journey

“Schedule a day of rest every now and then. Contrary to what you might read, sudden insights seldom happen at the summit of a mountain, at the moment the whale is sighted, or in the face of some overwhelming bit of landscape. You haven’t yet assimilated the experience. Look for epiphanies on those days when you’re lying on your back, watching the ceiling fan push dust motes through a shaft of light falling through a grimy window. Exhaustion seldom engenders insight.”
–Tim Cahill, Hold the Enlightenment (2002)
