Frankie Says Relax was an icon song in the early 80s by the English band Frankie Goes to Hollywood. I’m taking Frankie’s advice this week as Jane and I spend time at a beach house in North Carolina. It’s our first vacation, just the two of us, in three years.
What’s my idea of relaxing? Catching up on reading, finishing my next book, some light exercise, sleeping in past 5 a.m., and drinking a little more Scotch than normal.
I love what I do but don’t take enough time to wind down so I’m looking forward it! As you read this, I may be staring at ocean waves, watching a sunrise, looking up at the stars, or walking the beach with Jane.
Wherever you are, I hope you’re making some time to relax and recharge your batteries.
