Might and Main Monday: Provence Vacation in my Mind

What is a vacation? By my definition, it’s a place where you go to relax and feel happy. In that case, writing is my vacation. It’s where I’m in a “flow” state, where I’m not concerned about every day tasks and feel spiritually at ease. This year I’m taking a Provence vacation as I write this novel. I imagine its countryside, its delicious food, its charming villages. Yes, I want to be there in person, but I can’t, so as I’ve mentioned before, I travel in my mind. I sit outside during the Seattle summer evenings and write. In fact, I came across this quote by Mark Twain that nicely sums up my outlook. Here it is.

The secret of success is making your vocation your vacation.

–Mark Twain

I hope you can take a “vacation” by enjoying your passion this summer.
