Please Find Some Quiet Today and This Weekend

As we all struggle to process the news unfolding in my home state right now, I strongly encourage all of you who are able to get outside. If possible, get out in nature. Take your kids. Take a break from the scariness, the constant noise about these horrible events.

Run free. Let the wind hit your face. Forget about the horribleness for a while.

I just returned from a walk in the woods. I even got rained on. I had to disconnect from the constant news stream. I'm still reeling like everyone else, but I feel better equipped to manage my emotions.

Friends in the Boston area, we are thinking of you and hoping that you, too, will be able to find some peace this weekend.
