((A real solid episode… much food for thought))
The key question I pose to you, the listener:
Growing up, did your family have a weekly day of rest, of recharge? Was it effective? What were the best aspects of this day?
In your life now, is there a weekly day of rest? What is the ritual? Is it working well?
And looking forward, if you could build a ritual – what elements would you include – music? exercise? cooking? eating? reading? watching a movie?
While this episode is practical in that it is meant to encourage an evaluation of our day of rest, It also drifts (wonderfully) to some deeper questions, questions that are a relevant in contemporary social debate: how can we develop a nuanced relationship with human’s past, human’s old cultural institutions, and our collective human history?
And of course, I also tell my own story of building a good ‘day-of-rest-and-recharge’ ritual.
