It’s been half a month since I worked. It’s always a jarring experience to get back to the grind from a vacation.

Of course, the vacation I had was a very active one with me constantly on the move. One of the things I tend to like is a sense of routine, a “normal.” I can say with great certainty that I did not have a routine going on. If there was anything routine, it was the constant frenetic movement.

But now I’m back to my desk.

The routine, though “work,” in so many ways makes me more comfortable.

Humans are strange creatures.
