Delightfully closed for the holidays!

Delightfully closed for the holidays!

If a tree falls in the forest with no one in earshot, does it make any noise?
If the phone on the desk in my abandoned-for-the-holidays office rings in my absence, does it make any noise?

Who knows?

And in this carefree season of ease, who cares? The rude season of work will resume its demands soon enough. I’ll worry about that next week.

Better yet, this close to the liberation of retirement, I won’t worry about it next week. I’ll show up and do what I’m supposed to do, but the proverbial light at the end of this career phase’s tunnel gleams so near that it outshines any gloom that may arise in the closing months.

That’s a real dose of holiday cheer!
