wouldn't you know

As soon as I want something to take my mind off of life, work becomes a little less difficult, all-encompassing and stressful.

Luckily, there are plenty of house-related messes to clean up.

And a nice weekend trip to look forward to.

Have I mentioned how much I'm yearning for some get-away time? Seriously. Today during my walking club, we went to BCE Place (now called Brookfield Place, but who really calls it that?!) to see the World Press Photo exhibit. It was amazing. And that's not to say that they were uplifting. Apparently we love sad photos -- I saw many of horrific ones today to be sure.

But it did remind me how fascinated I am with other cultures, other places, exploring, seeing for myself.

I need to start doing that again in my own city, even. I need to start stepping outside of my known universe more often. Doing more scary things. It's the way you find the things that are worthwhile. The things that will get me excited about the future.
