Monday Morning Motivation….See The Good in the Not So Good.

There are so many reasons to be unhappy.  Lets just mention a few…. I am going through a divorce, my water heater does not work, I have the flu, some guy was driving down the road, his truck slipped on the ice and he plowed down mine and my neighbors mail boxes.  I have 3 mail boxes and the associated debris cluttering my front porch. I have every reason to be unhappy.  What am I suppose to do?????

 I already know the answer to that question.  I am suppose to see the good.  I am suppose to focus on the positive.  For example my daughter Erica bringing food to my door to get me through my days of quarantine, (She brought wine too:-).  My neighbors texting me daily to make sure I was ok.  My friends asking if I needed anything and their willingness to help me if I do.  One friend even offered to make me soup.  The fact that the young man that hit our mailboxes was not hurt and has tried to partially repair what he accidently damaged.  That Charles, my neighbor, is completing the mailbox…

Travel, Oh the Places I Would Go…..Dry Tortugas National Park/Key West Fla

I would love to visit Dry Tortugas National Park just off the coast of Key West Fla. Here is what they said on their website….
"Almost 70 miles (112.9 km) west of Key West lay a cluster of seven islands, composed of coral reefs and sand, called the Dry Tortugas. Along with the surrounding shoals and waters, they make upDry Tortugas National Park. The area is known for its famous bird and marine life and its legends of pirates and sunken gold. Fort Jefferson, one of the largest coastal forts every built, is a central feature. To clear up some confusion, Dry Tortugas National Park is located inside Fort Jefferson, which sits on Garden Key." All photos are from Pinterest…. Fort Jefferson I would explore the fort….
 Go snorkeling...  Smile at a friendly sea turtle….  Take photos of the many birds found on the island…. There are two ways to get to the fort.  You can hop on a ferry for the trip or take the sea plane.  Since in my fantasy world money is no object, I would take the sea p…
