Do you ever wake up and wonder, "What is the purpose here?" I've been waking up feeling that way a lot. The grander purpose I can see and understand...but the smaller ways the purpose work itself out in daily life...wow--it feels pretty silly some days. Maybe it's the result of having too much vacation time (5 weeks). I've learned how to say in Chinese, "The rest has made me lazy."
There's a great verb in Chinese that means both "to let and to make" (there aren't two verbs for it.) So, it's easy to remember.
