Much like last week, my mind bit off more than it could chew on Friday. It’s not quite as epic an undertaking as the sidekick mascot extravaganza, but it’s way more than my brain can chunk down right now. When Paul and I aren’t on the road, I do a bit of freelance business-y stuff* which, when combined with other recent mental exertions, hasn’t left me with much in the tank.

Yep, I’m taking a braincation today.

I first recall hearing the brain described in terms of the muscle by one of my professors in college: the more you work it, the stronger it become. Even over the relatively short period of time I’ve been writing of every day (and even granted that it’s usually not rocket science, except days for which it is, that is), I feel my brain-strongs getting musclier.

But as that last sentence demonstrates, as with muscles it’s probably important to let it rest now and then, to let it heal, or knit together all those fun li’l axons in new and excited, or whatever the heck the brain does to improve one’s abilificaion to make of the ideas go voom-time.

For certainly if slathering mind upon sentences don’t find place of semblance, proper, yes? Then of course not! I’ve time Star Wars fragment you’re placement enjoy presentation, but next week.

Meantime, colada relaxation brain food of enjoy Photoshop by sand humor fish sticks.

    1) Once upon a time I managed to crank out 42 pages of content in a single day…but was unable to do anything for the next three days beyond staring at the walls and drooling so yes! Let your brain strongs have some time to relax! You’ve earned it! 🙂

    2) I am absolutely adding the term “braincation” to my vocabulary. I think it is going to tie with “meatspace” for favorite new word of the week.
