My friend let me know it was the beginning of Lent and what would I be willing to give up for forty days? I considered and said ,"Liver." no, but seriously, how about watching the news? I have recently given that up most days, unless it is being watched by husband and I'm in the same room. It is so darn depressing, so I put on some nice music and read, or watch a garden show, (Recreating Eden) most mornings. I think it actually does make a difference. If you are trying to stay peaceful and creative yourself, the news is a toxic dumping of fear and negativity that squelches any hopeful or bright or creative feelings. So later on, will make some tea, and set away a few minutes to escape to Enchanted April, set in warm Italy, while here it is cold and rainy February. cheers!
