The past few weeks have been, well…interesting. Exhausting, actually. I’ve been taking some classes at Flagler College- a French class and a class on Putin and post communist Russia (how timely is that class, hmm?🤔) which keeps me busy. Clay has been busy with school and his girlfriend, and Paige has been working hard at school and is getting involved with a few more activities at school (more on that soon.)
Mostly though, what’s been so…exhausting…is just, everything else. Turning on the news. Or going online. Reading the New York Times or the Washington Post or Newsweek or The Atlantic or listening to NPR. My point is that anywhere you look, or listen…you cannot escape it. Everyday it’s another scandal. Everyday it’s another crisis. Another violation. (Not trying to get political here; just trying to explain how we’re feeling- alarmed, and exhausted.)
We’d love to get through just one day in peace – just one 24 hour period without a scandal or crisis – but that doesn’t appear likely. Anyway, it certainly hasn’t happened in the past 27 days. There’s not much we can do about all the crazy going on in Washington D.C. right now and that’s frustrating. So we walk.
We’ve been doing a lot of walking. It basically has been keeping us sane.
