Signs I need a vacation: I drove to work last Friday because I had stuff to carry and several places to be.
After a long day, I knocked off work.
I walked out of the office.
And took my usual bus home.
Fortunately, on the bus, I took something out of my pocket and felt my car keys. Then it dawned on me. I quickly got off at the next bus stop and sheepishly walked back to the office car park.
A) It goes to show you how rarely I drive to work.
B) I think this is a reminder I need to slow down, and maybe find pleasure in the simpler things.
Like my nature and insect-loving youngest daughter, in the photo above. A photo I entitle "Joy, Insect Hunter, on a hill."
