There are times that I just want to pull an Ostrich. Been feeling that acutely recently with all the world events and news. Fortunately, I got as close to that desired experience of putting my head in the sand as one could last week when we rented a houseboat on Lake Powell. I got to unplug from the world and reset amidst massive red rock slabs towering overhead and cool, clear, water below. Not only did I get some time to my thoughts, oblivious to the news, but I also got to reconnect with family. For me, smiles on my kids faces and their uncontrollable laughter is as strong a cure as anything else. Grateful for all of the laughter and smiles that empower me to emerge from the sand and take on a new month with vigor.
