““Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”
– Maya Angelou
Fr. Dave Rogerson will be with you this weekend while I am away on a week’s vacation. Fr. Rogerson is one of our senior priests who continues to help in various parishes. I have known him since my high school years, which is a long time.
For vacation, I am planning on getting some projects around the house accomplished, some extra reading done, a few friends and family
visited, and enjoying these August days in the northwest.
I came across a couple of quotes about vacations. The poet and civil rights activist, Maya Angelou, once said: “Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.” The Turkish playwright, Mehmet Murat ildan said, “Neglecting vacation is neglecting success because every success needs an accumulated positive energy!”
I am not sure how much I will get done. It is never all I have planned. However, I hope I come back rested and energized. We have a full and exciting program year beginning. Hope you are also able to get summer rest and refreshment.
