Open Thread Mondays: And We’re Back!

After a refreshing four-day break, we’re back, energized and ready to bring you some news.

It was a good break, too; one of the rare ones where I cut any tethers to e-mail, phone or other means of contact. If you’re like me, that’s a huge leap, and one that’s somewhat daunting and uncomfortable until you finally allow yourself to let go.

And let go I did, after a day of walking towards my computer, stopping, turning around and walking away. Or picking up the phone and beginning to open the mail app, before finally balking and chucking it to the other side of the room.

Why is it so hard to let go these days? Why is it such a challenge to disconnect?

Well, regardless, I finally did it, and enjoyed a nice weekend  of friends and family, bumping around New York City, eating out and watching movies (if you’re interested, J. Edgar had great acting and makeup, but, like many Eastwood productions, needed a bit more editing).

What did you do for your Thanksgiving break?
