The Holiday is Upon Us

The Holiday is Upon Us

booksLabor Day Weekend. The unofficial end of summer in America. Time for picnics, barbecues, the last swim in the pool before we cover it up for the winter. Some people take that last long weekend vacation before we get serious about school and politics and the autumn harvest, but for many around the world, it’s just another day on the calendar.
Labor Day is about making sure we don’t spend our lives working ourselves to death. It’s about those who insisted that 40 hours was enough work for one week, because we have other things to do with our lives. Leisure things, family things, hobbies, puzzles, sleep, or my favorite: read.
As the carefree days begin to elude us, take some time to remember that this weekend is about enjoying your life, doing something you don’t often have time to do because of obligations, You will do yourself a favor if you recharge your batteries and turn the switch to the off position if just for this last summer weekend before the onslaught on Pumpkin everything and shorter daylight hours is upon us.
