It’s Friday! You know what that means. Time to find out what I learned this week.
I learned this week…
…that Alaska has now been promoted to my list of no-can-dos.
…that while I am saddened at the loss of a musical talent who had yet to reach her full potential, I can’t say that I am particularly surprised. Addiction kills and some people, unfortunately, are past the point of no return.
…that my love for politics has waned. For years I’ve been a liberal leaning Dem, but recently I have grown increasingly disgusted with both parties and their self-serving agendas. When I was researching Ronald Reagan this past spring, I stumbled upon this gem: “Governments tend not to solve problems, only rearrange them”. Absolutely true, and while they are rearranging our monumental problems, they are running our country straight into the ground. Our founding fathers would hang their heads in shame at the behavior of our so-called leaders – on both sides of the aisle. So much for American exceptionalism.
…that “A vision without a plan is just a dream. A plan without a vision is just drudgery. But a vision with a plan can change the world.” Proverb.
…that no matter how much I try or how much I am looking forward to a vacation, I still dread it.
…that fields of blooming sunflowers make me smile. No easy feat.
…that the icy tentacles of winter would be a welcome sight, even if for just one day.
…the Orlando International Airport was designed by a bunch of crazy monkeys.
