Gone Fishing

I’m going to turn off my computer for the next twenty-four hours and take myself on a fishing trip. Not to fish for fish, of course — such a hobby is only peaceful for the one fishing; the poor fish are scared, hurt, and fighting for their life — but to fish for life. See what happens when I am disconnected from my usual online pursuits. Just take off for a day. See what I can see. Feel what I can feel.

If you want to contact me, leave a comment and I’ll get back to you tomorrow. Or whenever.

    Good luck and Happy New Year. I have my kids visiting and we will have a memorial 3rd year celebration of their son’s life this week. Thank you for grief online tip. I have been able to talk to my daughter-in-law better about her grief and my son too! It has been difficult to talk to tough guy son.
