Give Me a Break: Van Gough, Painting & Time Off

I’m on a break. I am in my ninth year of blogging. I can tell that little voice in my head that says, “you aren’t keeping up with your obligations, you have not finished what you started…”  to shut up. One of my obligations is my well being and this week, I’m on a break. Van Gough painted a skull with a burning cigarette. It seems like a departure from what he typically painted. It’s a reminder, it’s ok to make a change, to do something different. I spent the afternoon painting and tonight, rather than four hours of write, edit, rewrite. I’ll just watch the evening sky. This week consider, can you take a break?
