I have turned into a crossword puzzle junkie. This is a recent phenomenon and one I am thoroughly enjoying. I believe it has something to do with focusing my mind solely on the task at hand. I suspend all thought about the current political problems we are experiencing, my worries about friends who are going through tough times, two families that are in the middle of the dying process with a loved one, and instead, just try to think of the answer to a crossword clue. Ah bliss.
This doesn’t mean I will mindlessly go through life. However, a little respite never hurt anyone.
Happy refocusing for just a little while, my friends. I will check back in again tomorrow.
