A change is as good as a vacation.
The above bit of wisdom (or joke) was a frequent saying of my father.
While often I didn’t appreciate it. After all, change is difficult, and unexpected changes on a farm often translate to more and messier work. There is a grain of truth in the simple sentence.
There have been days when I’ve been moving from task to task to task and welcome the change of stillness.
And then…after waiting and waiting (for my name to be called or another person to arrive) when activity is the welcome change.
