Escaping the news…
Lately, the news is really bugging me. Politics, violence, COVID, injustice, racism, restrictions, discrimination, poverty, and foreign issues… Every day there is a new, sad, frustrating story flashing on our screens, printed in the paper, and it’s almost as if it’s impossible to avoid hearing about it.
For this week, I’ve decided to capture that feeling. The feeling of being surrounded by all those stories and negativity, like being trapped in a box, and the only way to not let it absorb you is to make the choice to just stop looking.
So everyday, I try to escape the news, even if it’s just for a little while, and try to focus on myself. In those moments, I turn my head to something positive, something light, and allow myself a break. It really works!
