May 3rd

Happy birthday to my niece, Kelly!! I hope this is your best year ever.

The month is just beginning but my calendar is full of deadlines and birthdays and school things. Since starting my Master's program I have written 8 books, sold five and hit monthly deadlines, plus home work for residencies. There are days when I think, I'm tired. I need a break. Life just seems to zip on by regardless. The funny part is I have friends who go on vacation and come home more exhausted than ever. The American work ethic is nuts. I like the idea of a month off to celebrate the summer. Or perhaps afternoon breaks to rest a bit when the heat is at it's highest point. Other countries do it. Why can't we? It might even help our healthcare system. Perhaps I'll stop for five minutes today and sit on my swing and watch the ducks and geese sleep on the lake. It's just a thought...
What do you do to relax?


  1. Congrats on all your success! Sounds like the Master's programs is doing great things for your career.

    I like to read to relax.
