I’ve spent this entire weekend logged off Facebook and didn’t look at any of the major news sites that I check daily during the week. I needed a break from both coverage of recent and current events and anticipatory anxiety about 12/21/12 (which is going to be just another ordinary day, trust me).
Sometimes we all need to step away from the daily crisis feed and focus on other things–any other things. I played with my dogs, took some pictures, talked to my folks on the phone, and corresponded with my friend in Portugal. I slept late and went to bed early. I listened to music. I took long showers. I watched the snow fall.
It was a good weekend, away.
