A Change Is As Good As A Rest

Sorry to be AWOL for the last 10 days or so, but I was on vacation.

I read a lot of creativity books and most of them agree-the same routine day after day dulls the mind. I'm sure most of us don't need to be told that, we know it from experience. And as my grandmother used to say, "a change is as good as a rest!"

So our annual family camping trip to Door County, Wisconsin, was refreshing and inspiring. For those of you that don't know the area, the county is surrounded by Lake Michigan and Green Bay, giving it a highly nautical flavor with charming harbor villages and saturated with galleries and outdoor sports. Camping at Peninsula State Park, where you have to book a site 10 months in advance to get a prime spot, is always entertaining. The theater in the park forest always has a choice of plays or funny musicals (Packer Fans from Outer Space, Lumberjacks in Love) to keep the whole family occupied.

I came back (almost) ready to go back to work and with new ideas to pursue.

And no, I am not a member of the Wisconsin Tourism Board.


  1. no one missed you, i wish you were gone for 10 more.

  2. Well, you can't please all the people all the time. But this nasty person is the reason I've just changed my blog to stop anonymous comments. You can disagree with me if you want (and you're in the minority) but at least have the guts to leave your name. Being anonymous is just too cowardly.
