No Work Monday

"Be silly. Be honest. Be kind." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
All work and no play can be hazardous to your health. We do not want to be so worried about making a living, that we forget to live.

Therefore, we give ourselves time to play, to be silly, to let go. We laugh so hard that we are reborn and don't know where or when we are for a moment.

We dance, jump, sing, fly, shout with joy. We are alive now. Best to take advantage of that while we still can.

We don't want to wait for some arbitrary time when it will be alright to be ourselves and live again. A lot of steam can build up while we wait to retire, for example.

This is our safety valve because we know that having time to play is good medicine. Work has its place, and we bend to it with equal joy when needed. But no more than needed, for we are not machines.

We are working to live, not living to work. We are doing the happy dance, and hope you are, too.
