A permanent vacation of the mind, much enjoyment you will find.

Vacation of break,
escaping lifes usual shake,
vacation each and everyday,
this is just the way,
I make life pay.

Some wait,
let time dictate.
Wait around,
you could be hitting the ground.
Before vacation time come,
you could succumb.

Vacation doesn't have to be,
an elaborate voyage to sea,
an expensive journey,
a long lay in the sun,
or a huge trip of fun.

Simply realizing lifes fragility,
its tragic reality,
the wake up call,
to bounce the ball,
enjoy while we can,
just an everyday joyful plan,
increases the life span.

Forcing thoughts of joy,
playing with a favorite toy.
Hanging in a favorite place,
dealing the comfort ace.
Keeping the joy light on,
so the body will act upon.

A vacation away,
each and everyday,
in each and every way.

Right ! Love that advise.
We all need a vacation once in a while - either physically or emotionally. As long as we manage to get away.

Love this one and it's so well written. I agree that's the way to live every minute. Life is so short. Might as well enjoy it.

A vacation can be as simple as a quiet day curled in front of the fire with a good book and some steaming hot cocoa loaded with marshmallows! :O)

This is what I tell my family.. Vacations are made. They don't need to be in another city.. It can be a mini vacation of the mind and soul.. doing something alone or with family .. we all love to do.. with us it's baseball.. walks.. and basketball.. Great message Grady.. Sometimes we think alike.. Scary hu?
