to be or not to be unplugged
a small thought:
when i'm on vacation i generally like to remain unplugged and get totally away from the computer. i prefer to look through a window screen, not at a computer screen. for me, the idea is to block distractions, open up my mind, and allow new stimulation to grab my senses, so that when i do get back online i can—i hope i can, anyway—write from a fresh perspective.
but in january hannah brought a computer with her on our family vacation and i confess, i cheated.
i logged on.
but guess what? i found i only needed a little fix.
honestly, i felt better when i was logged off.
and guess what? the world kept spinning around, and i didn't miss anything of actual importance during the time i had been unplugged.
