Time Out

News, mostly bad, assaults my senses all day, every day. Natural disasters, man-made disasters, disease, pestilence, and crime compete for my attention. After awhile it becomes impossible not to become overwhelmed by the steady onslaught.

My granddad, a news junkie who relied mostly on the radio and newspapers, routinely declared one day a week to be a no-news day ... turning the radio off and not reading the newspaper.

Time for my own time-out. Time to turn off the radio, television, iPod, cell phone, and laptop. Time to listen to music, go out to a movie, or perhaps, read one of the books I've set aside until now.
