Today is election day, and I’m sure most of us are fully wound up and pissed-off at about 50% of everyone else. So far I’ve had the restraint to keep away from the political threads that have popped up over the past few days, but even a quick skim at times has managed to make my blood boil. That’s not to say that passion about politics is a bad thing–we should be passionate and we should argue, debate, yell and scream. But we should also remember to take a break. I find that, late at night when most of the world has gone to sleep, if I put on some headphones and turn up “Carolina in My Mind” by James Taylor, just about everything is alright for about four minutes.
So don’t forget to take a break every once in a while. We’re multi-tasking ourselves to death.
