In life, there is work and play.  Striking a balance requires focus.  It can be as ‘tricky’ as climbing into a hammock while holding a drink in one hand with an electronic devise in the other. 

In the game of chess, we sacrifice weak players in the quest to ultimately conquer the king. We leave some stronger players to the sidelines and never enter them into play.

Chess is a fascinating game of strategy where a few planned plays may be the only way to challenge your opponent and ultimately exclaim "Check Mate".

Rest is necessary to maintain ones health.  The draw of a hammock; a cool breeze; the hot rays of the summer sun; the chirping of small song birds; all beacons toward a forgetfulness of time and place. 

You have become royalty, if only for a short while.
