    Ah yes, our worries will always wait for us, unfortunately. A holiday might distract for a moment, but … nicely observed.

    vacation’s end–
    finding my worry stone

    I'm sure as a younger adult I had various worry stones over the years. I wonder where they all are now?
    It's great to leave our worries behind when we have a vacation, but find our lodestone when we get back to "the land of worries" afterwards!
