thoughts...from the "bluebird in my heart"...

This quote is more elegantly displayed by Erin Loechner on her blog Design for Mankind but the words resound...

"This is very important -- to take leisure time. Pace is the essence. Without stopping entirely and doing nothing at all for great periods, you're gonna lose everything...just to do nothing at all, very, very important. And how many people do this in modern society? Very few. That's why they're all totally mad, frustrated, angry and hateful."
— Charles Bukowski

I also have to say that it is also a good practice for creativity. I think that you need periods away from your work to regenerate--to enjoy that time rather than worry it away.
