Trumspringa-the temptation to step off your career track and become a shepherd in the mountains, a hypnotic diversion that allows your thoughts to make a break for it and then wander back harmlessly to your cubicle.

i dont care how hard of a worker you think you are
you're still a human being...
well that is assuming you havent been replaced by a robotic drone
the possibility is more realistic than you think 
and if that were the case then you probably wouldnt be reading this blog
because robotic drones dont have thoughts or feelings
and information about theses attributes does not compute
allow me to digress

even the most diligent of workers, at some point in their busy week 
find themselves in the need of a trumspringa.

maybe not necessarily the whole shepherd in the mountains bit
but something equally innocuous 
a completely different life than what you lead
a more simplistic one
something that relinquishes you from all those responsibilities
and allows you for a moment in time to feel weightless and worry free
something to give you a the boost you need to make it through the week

its a day dream of sorts
just a little mini-mental vacation
and its nice while it lasts

  1. I need this in my life----- is there a word for stepping off your place in the world? not, just the career path?
