Tomorrow morning, I head off for a weeklong trip to New England. This long-awaited vacation is something that has been in the works for a while.
Last year, I wrote about the importance of taking time. It is important for people to refresh themselves, and to enjoy some time away from their work to redefine their perspective, refresh their minds, and rejuvenate their spirits.
Joel Spolsky wrote about taking a sabbatical, and the importance of taking time for oneself. This is important because it helps to clear the mind, improve the spirit, and free the gunk from our lives that seems to bog us down.
I expect to come back rejuvenated, with more passion and increased appreciation for the work I do and the writers I serve here. I have not, however, abandoned you for next week. There are blog posts scheduled for publication next week, and they will be published, per the normal schedule.
So, have a great week, and see you in two.
