Musings: News Source

Today’s topic is: “What is your favorite source of news?” 

I don’t like watching the news or reading about current events. There is just too much bad news out there. It gives me nightmares, it haunts my thoughts in the daytime. Basically, it’s just too overwhelming for me.


But I’m a consistent (maybe even obsessive) viewer of CBS Sunday Morning. The segments are not always happy stories (like today’s heartbreaking piece on the country singers Joey and Rory Feek) but I enjoy the interviews with famous artists and authors and I always learn something new. (Did you know that some cities have their own flags?!) I also see places that I add to my bucket list like the Albuquerque Balloon Festival and the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. And I love how they end every episode with a moment of nature (I get more bucket list ideas there too).

Overall, it’s a more gentle version of news compared to the local, national, and international news. Often I finish watching Sunday Morning and feel refreshed and encouraged. My sensitive soul can handle it!

If you know of a source for good news, share it in the comments.
