Growing up, I always enjoyed the up and down patterns of work and play.
Just as you were getting burnt out on school, a break would come along.
By the end of the summer, you were ready to go back to school and there was an excitement about it.
That doesn’t exist so much in the adult work environment unless you live in parts of the world where a long summer break is part of the picture.
As The Gotham Gal and I have moved beyond our child-rearing years, and found a way to work from wherever we are, we are recreating that childhood rhythm for ourselves.
We are wrapping up our summer today and heading back to the fall season in NYC.
It’s a bit like that back to school feeling, with a new lunchbox, some new clothes, the possibility of some new friends, and an excitement about all of that.
