Now, though, I am back in the land of reality…..two- and one-half days of escapism, of distraction, of joy. As I was watching TV last Friday evening, surfing the channels, I unwittingly found that the local PBS station was showing Downton Abbey re-runs. Thus, it began, this mental vacation – I was sucked into the TV, re-living the escapades and accomplishments of the Crawley family. I was in TV heaven, I was transported for a short time out of the reality of this current world to watch a fascinating story, fiction as it was, of a family with all of its ups and downs. Yes, when Downton Abbey was in “season” I watched it regularly, but I did miss some episodes. Well, I can happily say, I am all caught up. What a marvelous example of talented writing, acting, producing, and all of the facets that it takes to bring such a show to life. I am grateful.
