ON THE BACK BURNER

March 1

A message popped up on my iPad screen. It said that my time on my iPad was down 49%. That didn’t surprise me. I watched so much news,kept myself so emotionally involved, that I feel as if I just burnt myself out.  I use to walk home from taking Dixie for her morning walk , picking up my NYT from the mail box as I walked her. I would try and read the front page as I held the leash and poop bag in one hand and the paper in the other . I was usually upset by the time I reached our yard. So now, I decided that I would check the news in the morning and then about 5 o’clock. I can’t understand how this happened, but the world got along no better, no worse without my angst. Some things got better, some people still make me upset, some good things happen, bad things still happen, I am still disappointed by some actions, but my viewing time is down 49% and that is better for my mental health.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
