Sometimes I wonder if taking these festive breaks from reality are truly helpful, at least for me. I realize they de-stress my psyche and recharge my soul, but the next few days at work are exponentially more ... well ... challenging. Nahhh, that's crazy talk. I'm not giving up vacations!!
At any rate, here's to the rest of the year, all those days that we work hard and go to school and move everything forward with a meaningful sense of routine and achievement. I do suggest, however, that we keep a little summertime in our back pockets in the event that things start to go downhill.
"One must maintain a little bit of summer, even in the middle of winter.” ― Henry David Thoreau
