Did you ever watch that HBO show Six Feet Under?
There’s this great quote in one episode that I think about from time to time.
We all go through fallow periods when we must let the soil rest to prepare for new growth.
Agriculturally speaking, when a field is left to go “fallow”, that means nothing is planted for a period of time in order to let the soil rest before it’s called upon to grow another crop.
I often think of that quote when it’s time to take a break from anything, whether you particularly want to or not.
