Just Breathe

We’re more than halfway through an unprecedented year of disasters, catastrophes and general weirdness, and I can’t help but wonder what the winter months hold. But for right now it’s August, and aside from the heat, at this writing there’s a temporary lull in the insanity. Those of us who can afford the money and time are probably spending it with family and friends, relaxing on a beach or otherwise enjoying this too-short span of long summer days. In a week or two we’ll all be scrambling to get kids back into school and gearing up for fall business. Right now it’s time to just breathe.

And that’s good. So many recent reports show that Americans, harried by the constant barrage of bad economic news and their own personal demons, are either foregoing a vacation or spending most of their time on vacation checking up on things at the office. That’s no way to live.
