A sniper’s view.
This past week I was in a funk.
An I-can’t-do-anything-right-my-house-is-a-wreck-what’s-wrong-with-me-’cause-everything-seems-fine kind of funk. It’s pretty typical this time of year. The weather (oh, the weather), the letdown following the holidays, coupled with all that’s going on in the world makes for a real downer.
If we were filthy rich, this would be the time of the year I’d schedule a vacation to the Caribbean or somewhere with warm blue waters and lots of sunshine.
But we’re not.
So we can’t.
Instead, I did the next best thing, I got out of the house. A change of scenery, even if just down the road, does a body (and mind) good. I had a few errands to run, but afterwards my son and I headed to the top level of a parking deck in downtown Greenville, SC with our cameras in tow for a different perspective. A sniper’s view.
A storm was headed in so we saw spied some beautiful clouds.
We saw antennas and satellite dishes.
A playground in the middle of it all.
And I should too.
So, how do you get de-funkdefied? Is there a special place you go to clear the cobwebs? Does music help you through? Or do you have one of those fancy sun lamps?
