Today marks day one of my first vacation
in four years.
I intend to not think about my job
for the next week and try to squeeze some of the tension
out of me that's been knotted up for so long, take a train
somewhere and become anonymous
for a few days and wander around like a tourist
. I'll have no schedule
, no meeting
s, no deadline
s and no need to wear anything requiring me to iron
it and I've been looking forward to this for a long time.
