That’s what I’m trying to do today, after a pretty stressful month in a very stressful year, which is why there’s no column from me in the paper today. Plus, I had to edit a post-debate column last night before bed, so I need to relax.

I came across this beautiful piece of sand art on Twisted Sifter Friday, and offer you that and other relaxing pictures instead of my usual Wednesday rants/weird humor. Enjoy.

If anyone needs me, I’ll be wherever this is. But you won’t need me, right?
