Weekly Recap – August 30th, 2013

Next week begins the final phase of my Omaha tour of duty. I’m flying out on Monday (Labor Day, ironic, eh?) and will be stationed there for two weeks, finishing what we’ve started.

As I drove in to the office this morning and thought about all the hardships we face with work and writing and whatever else life throws at us, a particular song hit the top of my shuffled playlist. The chorus always speaks to me. For those that have a hard time understanding the words through Jaz Coleman’s gruff English accent:

Oh, sing a song of joy
Sweet childhood, never desert me
Time for celebration, oh!
Overcome with a sense of elation
I’ll never let you get to me
Survival is my victory
Time for celebration, oh!
Overcome with a sense of elation

If you’re in America, I wish you a great three-day weekend. If you’re elsewhere, I also wish you a great three-day weekend. Just tell your boss you’re not coming in Monday. 🙂

    1. Ah, eliminating my ignorance, one comment at a time. 🙂 Thanks Thomas and enjoy your Labour Day weekend.

  3. I’m adding my well wishes as well. Have a safe trip and weekend. I’m off to the Renaissance Fair.

    1. Oooh! Never been to a Renaissance Fair, but have always wanted to. I hope you post some photos and a review. Have a great weekend.
