These days, I'm speechless. That, you might consider, isn't so unusual for a writer. We have words, yes, but we like to write them down, not say them. So really, I should say I'm wordless.
Except that I'm not. I've been on a complaining/whining/griping jag for months! And then the world news, well... Sometimes, it seems I can't even control my own life much less the whole world. And there lies the rub.
There's only so much I can do, only so much I can control. When it comes right down to it, it's largely limited to my own behavior. I think. My own actions and reactions... And still, I make a mess of it at times.
We (all of us) can't always have what we want. We'd so hoped to visit our beloved Lebanon with our dear children this year. It didn't happen. We can't always get away. Sometimes, we have to stay and work and deal with things. And that, by the way, is if we're lucky.
Joseph and I were finally able to go away on vacation and I'm so grateful.
I love Türkiye. It's one of our favorite destinations, a magnificent land, rich with history, warm-hearted people, and stunningly beautiful scenery. That's to say nothing of the food...
We also visited Greece, a lifelong dream. It's gorgeous, too.
And all with my sweetheart.
If we hadn't traveled overseas, I would have opted for the mountains. If not the mountains, then a weekend at the coast. And if not a weekend, then a day. A little rest, getaway, change of scenery or change in routine can do wonders.
And if none of that is possible, a good book is a wonderful option! :)
Wishing you peace and hope.
A Little of This, a Little of That
Keep me away from the wisdom that does not cry, the philosophy that does not laugh, and the greatness which does not bow before children. – Gibran Khalil Gibran
