Really could anyone these days spend a whole week, day, or month without the internet? I did this past weekend. I decided to challenge myself to spend the whole weekend not using a computer, or the internet or cell. I stuck with my old staples I used to do way before even owning the computer or being on the Internet.
I went back to pencil and paper to draw, read a lot, listened to old mix tapes, CDs, and dusted off my SNES. Though if my Atari 2600 & NES was still in working order I would have setup those up too. Plus I getting to go out side for a walk without taking my phone with me, was a great feeling. It was great taking the weekend to become disconnected from the “very connected world” I live & work in. Since the experiment went so well I hope to become more disconnected in every weekend I am not working…I like the idea of getting back to basics.
Winter is almost over and I’m really sad about it too. We have had just a sprinkle of snow, ice and sleet this year. I really wanted to see a full winter full of cold days and wintry weather, instead it’s been a mediocre winter with a sprinkling of snow and a lot of rainy cold days and a good share of warm days too ( I’m taking about 70 degrees Yuck not for winter, but perfect for spring/summer).
I really miss the days when we used to have a decent winter. No, I’m, not talking about a foot of snow, though it would be nice, but just a couple of inches of snow, and it lasting for more than hour. Just enough of the powdery white goodness that was deep enough to go on a sledding journey or even make snow angels or a snowman.
