As a proper hippy, it is my obligation to share with you this organization. Their mission is to help Americans realize the folly of overwork and live more like the Europeans, that is, with vacation!

Yes, I do want to start a revolution (would you expect anything less from me?), and you should too. Life is too short for all the working we do, without commensurate reward. Life is so precious and fleeting. No matter how much money you amass, you can’t buy more life or time.

So, today you traded in 24 hours. That’s 24 hours more of your cells aging, 24 hours less you have to live. How did you spend your time? How are you going to spend it tomorrow?

How will we ever get out of this rut that day by day whittles away at our chance to savor life?
