Freedom according to Chaucer

According to my favorite (now online) reference tome…OED…it is time for reading and walking. Closing. moving, and consolidating libraries will have to wait.

Vacation n.
Freedom, release, or rest from some occupation, business, or activity.
c1386 Chaucer Wife of Bath’s Prol. 684 Whan he hadde leyser and vacacioun From oother worldly occupacioun.
