Memorial Day 2002, about a decade into my freelance career. Apparently I had trouble unplugging.
I’m on vacation this week. Vacation, in the world of the freelancer, means doing about the same amount of work that you’d normally do, but with a nicer view.
And so it is with me. I’ve got the scut work, the writing work, and the volunteer work, which I volunteered to do this week because, after all, I’d be on vacation. (Will I ever learn?) In between, I hope to find some time to be creative—and my dog hopes I’ll find some time to walk her.
Meanwhile there’s a lovely breeze…spreading the pollen around. And did I mention the nice view?
Here’s wishing you the same.
The good news is I have learned.
Not working this weekend…not after today, anyway. That means two days off with the spousal unit: different spouse, different dog, same view. Happy official start of summer, everyone.
