When Dave Grohl looked out at the sea of people in Central Park last weekend for the Global Citizen Festival, he was moved to say he did not know if his band, the Foo Fighters, would ever play a concert together again. “We don’t have any shows after this,” he said. “This is where we play as many songs as we can in a short period of time, because, honestly, I don’t know when we’re going to do it again.” Mr. Grohl took pains to say that the Foo Fighters were not breaking up, calling the band “my life” and saying he could never give it up. But he added that members needed a break from one another. “Sometimes it’s good to just … put it back in the garage for a while,” he wrote.

How amazing! A hiatus. If you are a fan of the Foo Fighters, you and I are brothers or sisters in arms. I’ve been a big fan of the Foos for a few years now, traveling to their shows with my partner, air guitaring their music when driving and using their music as the sole fuel for my extended runs. The fact that they are taking a hiatus is sad, but I get it. Sometimes we all just need a break.

The beauty of a hiatus is that you don’t quit. Think about your marriage. If you could simply walk away from each other for a while and “behave properly,” the return could be amazing. It’s my thought that most people who are married actually love each other and that what kills the relationship is the often-mundane daily existence, the fact that life truly does get in the way of love.
