Just when is the sabbatical?
Thank goodness. I am taking two weeks off! So happy holidays. In the meantime check out this incredible South African blog "ELECTRICJIVE" that has just dropped some rare grooves from Hugh Masekela, Harari and Barney Rachabane.
Keep the spear burning!
"The words holiday or vacation have related meanings in different English-speaking countries and continents, but usually refer to one of the following activities or events:
Official or unofficial observances of religious, national, or cultural significance, often accompanied by celebrations or festivities
- A general leave of absence from a regular occupation for rest or recreation
- A specific trip or journey for the purposes of recreation or tourism
People often take a vacation during specific holiday observances, or for specific festivals or celebrations. Vacation or holidays are often used spent with friends or family.
A person may take a longer break from work, such as a sabbatical, gap year, or career break." (from WIKI)
