I have just returned from two weeks away from the electronic life. I watched a few TV weather reports and checked my phone messages once a day, but other than that, I didn't touch a digital device and didn't miss them at all. I kept a travel diary which I wrote longhand; I read paper books.
This is something of a first for me. While I do
enjoy interacting with people online, and missed those personal
connections, I really didn't miss the total internet experience the way I
have during previous offline vacations.
So I'm thinking about
that, and what it means for me, and how and where I want to spend my
time going forward. Unplugging has always been valuable for me, and this
time, I suspect, even more so.
In the meantime, it's good to "see" you again. :-)
