The machinery is always going.

If you sleep. If the gears keep you awake, eventually they turn slower and creakier and heavier and more labourious. So the noise and the effort adds to the lists of things that go bump in the night and that keeps you from real rest. … but I would rather go mad from sleep deprivation than stop the works and walk around empty.

A few words by the poet Dylan Thomas to take with you on the weekend. Take care of each other and whatever you do, don’t be bored!

“Oh as I was young and easy in the mercy of his means,

Time held me green and dying

Though I sang in my chains like the sea.”

– from ‘Fern Hill’

Play hard.

Said Jack Nicholson.

Hope you had a lekker, leisurely, long weekend! Sundays can be a bit of a downer, but if you’re in tears by sunset – maybe it isn’t Monday’s fault? Maybe your life sucks… Changing my day job and doing something I love (even when it’s REALLY hard work) turned my Sundays around entirely. Anxiety can steal half of your weekend, and if you’re not careful, you might start to think that’s normal. Like it’s not bad enough they get the rest of your week for cheap! Reclaim your weekend! Rest and recreation is good for you, trust me.
