The Scenic Route

I got lost on the way home from school today. I got off at an exit where I was convinced there was a Schlotzsky’s Deli and ended up instead in the middle of Podunk Holler (which, truthfully, is never all that distant in South Carolina.)

And although I had several things to do this afternoon—a meeting at work, some prep for school tomorrow—instead, I just drove, admiring the clouds  and making faces at cows. 1.11.12 025

I’ve been a little tense lately. Even now, at the end of the holiday, as I’m supposed to be gearing up for the next semester, I just feel like I can’t catch up. It’s not about sleep—I’ve slept plenty. It’s not really about down-time—while this vacation has had more responsibilities and deadlines than I’d prefer during the holidays, I’ve still taken time to read and relax.

But still. Everything is on fast-forward lately. I just can’t seem to chill.

But you know what? Now I have.
