Stressed? Anxious? Worried? It’s quite common to be filled with existential dread this time of year, what with the holidays and New Years and all. It can be a lot.
Well, it’s time to get back to basics and remember what it’s all about. Take anywhere from 10 seconds to the rest of your life checking out the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam, which is live right now on YouTube.
