Today I’m taking a break from a couple of rather pressing projects to spend some time on other things; sort of a mini-vacation. Now and then it’s exciting to step out of the routine for a while to let the mind wander and wonder. Jeff had an idea while we were at the condo last month that I like and want to explore. Jane Yolen and I have a pair of ideas, three actually, that need to be revisited and maybe nudged a little. A neighbor suggested a subject since we’ve been home from Mexico that I’d like to think about. I can’t really afford to take this break with heavy deadlines looming, but then again something tells me I can’t afford not to. I hereby give myself permission to play hooky today as long as I stay in the cage and report back to work on time tomorrow.
