And it’s noisy… decibels and decibels loud. If you’re curious about how noisy the Ringling Brothers site will give you a taste. By the time we got to intermission I was feeling punchy. Standing outside in the relative quiet and sunshine helped immensely.
Were there ideas to write about? Of course. Here’s just a short list:
- Riding the train.
- Salt marshes.
- Watching Pelicans.
- The delightful performers during the pre-show where we prowled around the circus floor and got to do things… probably three articles there, including communicating with a nice fellow who apparently doesn’t yet speak much English.
- Noise – an essay maybe.
I do feel regenerated
It was a long and wonderfully tiring day. And I was trashed even the next day. Not all because of the circus, but because the I really hadn’t had a quiet day for about 10. So I did next to nothing Sunday – slept and slopped around.
Today I do feel good and energized. I have had a new and productive idea about a problem blog I’ve got. I could write all sorts of articles as a result of the trip, and may if I can make them fit my various projects.
It’s always hard to know exactly what a vacation or doing something new will actually bring. I do know I’m glad I went. I’m glad I spent time with my son and my grandkids and his wife and her family. Feeling good is always good for us don’t you think?
How was your weekend?
