After holiday blues

After a holiday and before a deadline - that must be the worst place to be.

How can I remain in a holiday mood when the tempo has changed?

The looming deadline has also changed the dynamics of daily life. The sforzandos dominate what was previously a tranquil melodic piece.

Everywhere there are people wanting my attention. After unpacking the car, doing the laundry, and opening two weeks of post and email, I am left wondering if I should ever go away at all. Either that or never work again. It's so exhausting to accelerate to allegro.

Is it really the after holiday blues? No it's not a slow dance, but a fast tango. It should really be called the after holiday panic attack!
