It’s just about time to start thinking about making arrangements and plans for Summer vacations… if you’re the planning type. With a mild winter here in the mid-atlantic states, it feels like Spring already. We went away this past weekend. Not a huge vacation, just a long weekend getaway.
It always feels good to take a break. There’s an old saying of UK origin, “A Change is as Good as a Rest”. It’s unclear who said this first. Some think it came from Arthur Conan Doyle, and we know that Winston Churchill said it. Anyhow, that applies to our weekend adventure.
I’ve taken a little time off from my day job. We went to Williamsburg. We like to go there, and we visit at least once a year. We have our places we like to go, our meals we like to have, and our shops we like to visit.
Have you ever wondered why it seems to take no time at all to get to your vacation destination? It takes forever to get back home again. Is it the excitement of getting away that distracts you, as you travel towards your vacation destination? Are you just over it all on the way home? Is it just me, or does everyone experience that?
I love to go away, but you know what I love even more… coming home. No matter how nice a place is, or how much you enjoy it, there’s nothing like sleeping in your own bed. For me, there is a certain contentment I feel with my life and my home. I certainly don’t get to see my kids or grandkids every day, but I miss them more when I’m away. It’s kind of a vague feeling of not being accessible, I guess.
As my writing business grows, it occurs to me that I can do this anywhere. I work remotely, and this weekend I was able to accept and work on assignments on the fly. It is exhilarating to have that freedom. So much so, that it doesn’t even feel like work to me. I am passionate about writing, and enjoy the varied assignments I’m lucky enough to work on.
So… If you follow my blog, and wonder where I’ve been, all is well. I’m just writing to build my business. I love this blog, though, so bear with me while I get things organized. We’re about to discover all the mysteries of the universe!
