Ketchum with some ideas for a different sort of work break
Somehow it is Tuesday after Thanksgiving, and I missed a week of journaling. You can imagine that it was a dry spell creatively but rich socially. It started with that most American of holidays. The holiday reminds me of the simplicity of childhood, the anticipation of a run-up to the end-of-year festivities, and the feel-good story of pilgrims, indians, turkey, corn, and passing that first winter together. Giving thanks with a simple story that was likely nowhere close to the kid's book version of American history spooned out in my youth, but that is beside the point. The food coma lasted for days, thanks to my wife's wonderful cooking. On the other side, I was quickly over my head in work documents and website building. This backlog will last through the holidays, a different sort of anticipation than my childhood afforded.
No matter - this is a short respite before I jump back in. We all need a work break at some point.
