The Art of the Auto-Responder
I just received an amazing vacation responder. How often do you get to say that? From the ever-awesome Danette Relic:
thanks for getting in touch.
I've fled the city.
I'm staring out into
the Ontario soft blue
a great lake
a good thing
don't try to find me -
you will only be frustrated
as you search and search
calling out my name into the sky
over the water
you'll feel my absence and
then a pain in your heart
and when you hurt,
let's not suffer needlessly.
Plus, I'll be back on September 12th and likely respond to you shortly after that.
(if I don't, please give me a nudge!)
May your days be full, of whatever you most desire.
*By the way, vacation settings for your email don't only have to be used
for actual vacations you know. Is there something you need to take a time
out for? Email will be waiting for you when you come back from the spa,
reading a book, or spending time with your lover. Trust me.*"
