Hellatus does come with one advantage.  It’s a time for me to catch up on the project “to do” list, like arranging and enhancing the Supernatural photo gallery.  In pouring through the hundreds (okay thousands) of photos from six seasons, I’ve remarkably learned something.  Art often imitates life.  It’s through art we can gain appreciation for the simpler things in life. 
 
Not sure what I mean?  No problem, I can use some photos to share my points.  You see, we’re all somewhat worn by the daily grind. The workday can get pretty hard and physically grueling.



You never get enough private time to yourself.  



Exhausted, you climb into bed and barely have enough in you to tell the honey about your day.  



Before you know it you're fast asleep. 



Then have you get up the next day...



Get in a morning workout...







And do it all over again....



After work it’s time for a game with the guys.



Or the chance to settle in and watch a bad movie.  



Or just get goofy and share a laugh with friends. 







Or meet new people.  
 

 
And more... 


  
And more...



And more...



And... 
 
 
 
Um, what?  Right.  The lesson here is simple.  Life is short.  Relax and enjoy it.  



Learn to like what you see in the mirror everyday.

 

Remember that there's more important things in life than money.



Always say goodbye with a smile.



Wear something fashionable. 



And for Chuck's sake, put a shirt on when people are over!  You don't want to make them feel uncomfortable!



So you see, art often does imitate life!  Don't you feel so much better??



Enjoy the simple pleasures!

Must.. stop.. drooling.. or.. I.. will.. fry.. my.. keyboard..

Seriously, would it be so hard to write an episode where the boys decide to play hookey from hunting? It's a hot summer day. They find a cool lake to swim in. Then some supernatural creature wanders away with most of their clothes, and they have to do the rest of the episode.. shirtless.. in swim trunks.. with lots of sunshine closeups on their considerable assets!

Really.. Would that be so difficult? Imagine the ratings spike!

By the way, you can take it for someone who knows.. Somedays, journalistic integrity is WAY overrated!

Thanks for the fantasy time Alice!

Just a short comment.

"Reading" this article made me want to rush to the gym and pound a few more weights. :P

At least there was nice pic of Casey buried in the comments. :)
