The Zen of Shabbat

Today we visited with Dr. Judy. At one time Judy was my shrink; she later became a good friend. While we were catching up, Judy told me that since 2003 she has carried in her calendar the "prescription" I once wrote her on how to give oneself the gift of Shabbat. I offer it here for you:

"Give yourself the gift of time. One day per week --

No internet
No errands
No chores

Good food
Good friends
Good times

Increase as tolerated to full dose. May repeat PRN.

Refill: Forever"
