April 15, 2013

Yesterday I was overwhelmed with heart wrenching as well as frightening, photos,videos, and story lines. It consumed the second half of my day, as I am sure it did for many of you.

When I woke up this morning, my mind had pushed the event in Boston to the back of my brain. I turned on my computer, went online... and there it all was. 

Still there.

Not a dream.

So many people's lives changed forever.

Today I am going to try to distance myself from the news and not let it consume me. Instead I will focus on the beauty that surrounds me. Yes, it is still there... sometimes you just have to stop and look for it.


  1. and a pretty flower it is, I don't watch the news I'd never be able to sleep if I did I mostly learn what's happening from Gary or see online via fb or blogs.

  2. Spring is coming to your area. Just in time to provide a much needed change.

    I listen to the news via WGBH for BBC world news and Morning Edition after two hours I switch to music.

    The world is always out there if we need to contact it.

  3. Linda, we stream our news online and of course there were so many links to coverage on FB. After awhile I find it's unhealthy for me to watch. It disturbs my sleep too.

    This is what these terrorists, whether foreign or domestic want to do... cripple us emotionally so that we will hopefully become weaker.
    I don't want to give in to them!

  4. I hear you Michele~ I turned off my TV too. We can't give in...

  5. we are loading the kiln and the only noise we have is birds and geese.
    Plus I am from a newspaper man. Quit trying to solve the issue before it is even investigated, this is not TV.
    This should take months not seconds to find out the truth.

  6. It is very sad Michele. A reminder to appreciate what we have and make the most of each moment.

  7. UGH. I love how you said recently that after JZ you decided to live your life and take the chances because you never know what the future holds, and obv. you left realty for pottery. YOU are such an inspiration to me Meesh :)

  8. I sometimes wonder if the people that do terrible things would just stop, look for the beauty and enjoy it, if they would look for more productive ways of making achieving whatever goals they hope to achieve by using fear.


Don't be shy, talk to me... I won't know your out there if you don't!
