The Workday Ends

The end of the day arrives at last. As the last rays of natural light floods the Kanawha valley the day shift workers climb into their vehicles and head home. Along the way dinner is being prepared and sometimes the aroma wafts onto road. Children and pets rush out to greet the homecommers. The ties and work boots are abandoned with exuberance and those comfortable pants with the elastic band are picked up along with old tee shirt that feels like a welcoming hug. The say that the clothes make the man. If that’s true then taking your work clothes off is like taking off the person who you have to be and becoming who you are again. As I look at the feature image and see the parked train and the cars headed home it’s a great metaphor for the end of the workday and a little time for real life.

  1. There was a tweet that went viral which was something along the lines of a person visiting their friend at their workplace and thinking to themselves โ€œthatโ€™s not really you,โ€ as in thatโ€™s his work personality. Paha! I guess we have to create a separate face for work… and only some of us get to wear a face that at the very least captures the essence of us, and very few who get to be who they truly are. But the latter is not always a good thing… after all, Trump is president and he is sadly completely himself.
