The view from the dock in Ocean Isle, NC

From today through Thursday morning or so, H and I have gone to Ocean Isle, NC, staying at our gracious friend Stuart’s (and his gracious parents’ who own the place) vacation house.  Just walking to the end of the dock, breathing in the air which is just as humid as back in Durham but in a different and much better way, I felt worries just slipping away.

So, what is the big difference between being on vacation and being unemployed?

Reality 1: On vacation I don’t have to feel guilty about how surely I could be doing more to find a job.

Related reality: I don’t need to feel guilty the rest of the time.  I just need to make a good effort.  It’s always so simple when I uncomplicate it.
