Les vacances.

August 20, 2012

I took a break and went to France. I was actually really nervous before leaving and even brought my computer to be able to do work if necessary, but as soon as I got to my parents’ house, nay, as soon as I looked out the window of the train taking me to Lyon and saw this, I wondered what on earth I was thinking.

Geez, VACATION TIME! It’s August, and yes it’s great to be able to get-shit-done and take-care-of-things, and do-stuff, but once in a while, it’s also really, really good to unplug, take a deep breath and spend time with the people you love.

And so unplug I did, visiting my grandparents everyday, eating lots of cheese and even taking a small road trip to go to a wedding in the South. Overall I had an excellent time resting, slowing down, spending time away from the internets, away from work, and close to my family. It was very good.

And now back to work!

    Yes! Just as important as working hard is sometimes not working at all. Amen to that! Oh, and I LOVE that bottom photograph of the field. Such colors!

    Looks like you had a great time. I second that need to unwind from the computer. Last month I did some camping in Yosemite and no cellphone or computer. It re-energized my batteries. If you ever come out to California, it’s a place you don’t want to miss. BTW, I’ll be visiting Brooklyn in 2 months. Hope I can make a stop at your studio and see where the creation happens.

    Taking time off is hard, but so necessary! Love the picture of your grandma (I assume?) sifting through your cards. So great!
