Getting away is good for my soul.

pine_islandI couldn’t have asked for better weather since I’ve been here in Florida.    Everything about this trip has been perfect.  I have so many pictures, but I won’t upload them all here right now because it takes so long.   Most of them have been posted on my Facebook, but when I return home I might share the rest here.   Today is my last day.  I’ll be leaving very early tomorrow and spending most of the day driving.

The pictures posted here were taken yesterday evening in Pine Island — I can’t get over the beauty of the sunsets I’ve been seeing.

There’s an additional benefit to going on vacation.  I haven’t followed the news AT ALL!   In fact, I’m oblivious to what’s been going on in politics this week — and I’m fine with that.    This is not only a vacation from the daily grind, but also from all the negative events in the world right now.     It’s been very liberating being outside and active, instead of sitting indoors glued to MSNBC, getting depressed and anxious over things I can do very little about.

That doesn’t mean I’m giving up and becoming complacent!  No way will that happen. But it’s definitely a good thing to take a break from all that.   There’s truth to “ignorance is bliss” as long as it doesn’t become a permanent way of being.

  1. Watching MSNBC nonstop could depress Pollyanna. I stopped watching it when they got rid of Keith Olbermann. I get my news from email and Facebook. Been missing you. Welcome back.
