I received an e-mail yesterday from an old friend that's basically ready to throw his hands up and walk away from the world as he knows it. I read that letter and when I finished reading it I read it again. Nothing in particular seemed wrong, nothing earth shattering, nothing life altering. So, I determined that my old friend has the blues. Doesn't that happen to all of us at some point in time? You get so bored with your life, your job, your circumstances, your friends, your family, your spouse, your surroundings; you get bored with yourself. I think that's why they invented vacations.
Even the happiest, most content people in the world take vacations. We all have a desire to escape our hum drum everyday lives. A change of scenery does wonders for the soul. I think Jimmy Buffet nailed it when he sang "Changes in latitude, changes in attitude." Once we step outside of the box that we keep ourselves locked inside, our perspective towards everything changes.
I e-mailed my friend back this morning and included the photo that I'm posting today. I wrote one line in that message: Some Beach...Somewhere!
