October 10th was Mental Health Day, a world holiday. In these odd times we live in, it seems like an appropriate observance. For my mental health, I have been taking a break from different tasks, which is why this post is late.
My family and I have just returned from a much needed vacation. We took a road trip and drove a loop to visit members of my extended family. The last few days has been spent recovering from our drive and enjoying a refreshed feeling. I’m slowly getting back into a routine, still need a few more days to get back into the swing of things.
August is sometimes called the lazy Sunday afternoon of summer. As the month draws to a close in this odd and historic time we live in, here a few pictures to brighten up the day.
While I am taking some time off from writing blog posts, it seems appropriate to post pictures associated with taking time off. Enjoy the pictures and hope you are having a good summer!
Last week I took a break from work, to rest up and clear my mind. Every now and then I need time off to reset and review things in my life. Part of the review this time involved my writing and a desire for change, for some type of transformation. I realized that I’m ready for a shift in the type of writing I do. I’ve enjoyed writing short stories over the last few months while I’ve struggled on these bi-weekly blogs.
This post was originally scheduled for June 17, before Father’s Day. Due to a business trip, I didn’t get this edited and posted by then. I will get back to my schedule next week. In the meantime, some thoughts about fathers and Father’s day.
