Felicitations, and I trust you all had a great holiday week.
I did, culminating with the weekend leading up to the break up in the Eastern Sierra, plying music and hanging with a group of friends in an annual trek. With no internet, television or news. Not even the use of my beloved iPhone, save a couple of late night insomniac time on iAssociate, a terrific game.
So, I will keep it short and sweet this time. And usually I write at this time of year with a handful of things to do during the break, and first and foremost I can indeed recommend doing jus that: Going away bereft of TV or internet, just for a few days. It is liberating. And better, refreshing.
Even better, make sure you do it with this with your partner and family, and give them some undivided attention.
Take a walk on the beach, and make sure you breathe in the air.
Not to mention smelling the roses.
I will be back next week with some thoughts about the second half and more.
