I sometimes pray for even just a small whisper to tell me that I am on the right path. I feel like the universe just yelled at me. I have a vacation week approaching. Last weekend, someone recommended that I take a trip to the Smokey Mountain National Park. It sounded perfect. Fresh air and hiking, but not too rugged. Three times I hit <purchase ticket> and three times the transaction failed for one reason or another. Well, okay then…there are other places to go hiking. I began research for areas in Maine and Vermont. My eyes began to glaze over so I left the finalization till today.
I had been on the internet most of the morning without incident. Five minutes into narrowing down my selection, the smoke alarm gave out a long chirp. The power went out. My laptop, happy with its battery appeared fine. However, the router had lost power so the internet had left me. I think I will be staying close to home.
A great joke about listening and recognizing signs. The man at his house during a great flood.
