No News Is Good News

I went camping over the weekend, away from TV, phone and internet. I was unplugged and it was a welcome relief from the constant barrage of sadness and woe we call news. The news makes me wonder what's wrong with the world. It is enough to drive anyone mad! Heck, I get worked up just thinking about it!

But for a few days I went off the grid. The wind through the trees said everything is okay. Each night I fell asleep to a symphony of crickets. The call of birds and the sound of the rain was my alarm clock. Everything was right with the world. It felt good.

I need to unplug more often.
