On the Road to Vacation

As I entered the mind battle of unplugging from work, I looked out the window across the corn rows at the tiny flickers made by lightning bugs (a bug on my 'acceptable' bug list). Looking over the field I wondered: is life simpler out here or just different.

I felt like I was driving through a new narrative to my life.

The glimmers of light across the dark country felt peaceful. I was no longer the overwhelmed underling working to convince the world that I could do it. Country air or not, my head was still full but less frantic. Frantic was subsiding.

My thoughts rolled in like the cool layer of night air- So this is why people take vacations...
