Simplify, Simplify, Simplify
I wondered when this stay at the beach started on December 27th how I would feel without a TV, a radio, a telephone or a computer. Although I do confess I come to town every few days to check messages on the computer.
What I've discovered is that my music is the sound of the surf, morning and night. The sound of the birds, the whinnying of the horses, the tinkle of the goat's bell and every now and then a four wheeler or car. That's it! A true symphony of nature's sounds. The view of the goats, the ocean, the fishermen, the horses and the sunrises and sunsets are my TV screen. Not knowing the news has been magical. Not knowing about Mitt or Newt has been a blessing. In other words, NOT taking in all that day to day drivel makes life much better.
In the meantime I've read five or six books that I brought; I've done a little sketching; I've walked and sat in the sun. I LOVE BEING RETIRED!
How long would it take for me to get tired of this? Only time will tell............
