Free ?


For years, I have recommended that everyone have a “news-free” day.  That is especially important as the never-ending pandemic stretches on, as our political establishment continues to embarrass us, as neighbors gravitate into Red or Blue tribes, as domestic strife breeds domestic terror, and so on.

Saturday is my day to be free of news.  It is easy to change channels on television, and I’ve become a fan of the Discovery channel and National Geographic channel.   Newspapers are more difficult, but I make an exception for the sport news and quickly slip that section out of the newspaper.  A walk on the beach or in the park is  especially relaxing.

Life is more positive and is better without so much news.  Make your life better!  What is your day to be free?
