  1. My puppy’s name is Gus, but when he stole the bacon off my sandwich with a flick of his nimble tongue, I christened him “Lizard.” It makes me laugh to think of Gus the Dwarf-Lord as kin to the lithe fence lizards that sun on my deck on summer afternoons.

  2. Celine thought it was a great idea to take a time out from the quotidian tasks that she had imposed upon herself. She noticed the stack of unread material on top of her desk and decided to catch up on that for starters. She would then take afternoon walks in order to enjoy the beautiful weather that was coming her way. This would ultimately recharge and give her inner being a respite. It would definitely be the springboard for the development of new ideas.

  3. It started as a “time out” due to not feeling well. The time out lengthened as I couldn’t think well. Later the time out grew into the day is already shot I will start tomorrow. After several weeks I noticed my time out had grown into a permanent sabbatical and here I had lost over a months time and formed a new procrastination habit.

  4. Sometimes in life it is vital to give yourself a time out. When things seem to going south I find myself indulging in exactly just. In the midst of chaos and the carnage of the events happening around me, I seek and find a shrine of sorts, a place pure sublime and peace. A fortress of sacred bliss in the midst of the distorted reality. And there am able to be separate from the natural world and dwell in my own paradise oblivious to my surroundings. When I eventually emerge from it my mind is filled with a immerse amount of ideas and solutions…its like am a sage. I can think clearer and constantly have bouts of epiphanies. Oh how I cherish my time outs.

  5. I am by no means a pious man, but three days alone crawling through this desolate arid and Godless land, I found myself praying; no begging God to send someone, anyone to help.

    Two things soon became clear to me; one, there is a God and he/she is listening for someone did come; two, when begging the God Almighty…..be very specific.

  6. Time Out is the procedure used to get a grip on the environment when it is out of control. This technique is used in many areas of life to settle things down when necessary. Athletic Coaches, teachers, people in relationships need a time out to settle down and regain control.
