Keep moving, don’t focus on the accident about to happen

I have to avert my eyes from reading or watching the news and political commentary because the US election campaign, the economy, even civilization as we know it,  are so bleak, so disheartening that they drive me into a dark mood. They are things that I can’t do anything about, so I am as helpless as most other Americans, even though I live and work in Washington, DC.

Better to focus on yoga, meditation, learning some new computer skills, updating websites, redesigning my websites, catching up on the backlog of tasks and mail. Breathe deeply, pause, exhale, move on.
