Today marks the halfway point of my “vacation” to visit my family in Western NY. Aside from the increased sleeping and reading I’ve been doing, most people probably wouldn’t even call it a vacation. Actually, more than a few people have asked, “Aren’t you on vacation? Why are you working?” I’ve been working pretty consistently on a various assortment (read: 4 or 5) of projects. I’ve been having a lot of fun working on them and would really like get a few of them into some people’s hands real soon. But the thing is, vacation (at least to me) just means that I get to do exactly what I want. No stress. No obligations (aside from the occasional wedding… but those are just fun). I wake up and ask myself, “What do I want to do today?” And I go from there. If I happen to come out of this with a few new projects to show? Great. If not, well at least I had fun and got some ideas out of my head. And at least I had fun and did what I wanted. Now I just need to figure out how to make this sustainable once “vacation” is over.
