Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, GA.
Which means that I am resting per Edith:
a sliding away from daily tensions and worries, changing my perspective, emptying my mind of the daily grind,
releasing and producing creative energy.
Which, in turn, is the result of original ideas, creatively planned not only by the Callaway family (who preserved and developed the area)
but also my parents who for the past 25 years have gathered their six children (and spouses) plus their 29 grandchildren (and spouses) together annually for resting.
While here I plan to explore the nature trails, visit the horticultural center, watch the butterflies, and attend the birds of prey demonstration. That's just the beginning of getting outside, out of doors, and doing something different.
My parents took the challenge and developed it, as Edith suggests, giving memories of a childhood to the children of their children... not just watching it on a screen.
