- I made a conscious decision before the holidays to actually enjoy the time off. I wanted to spend time with my brood. I didn't just want to physically be there...I wanted to be a part of it all, of them. And that involved not getting a suntan from the soft fluorescent glow of my laptop's screen.
- To wit, my laptop's adapter decided to fry itself soon after the holidays began. The ensuing adventure to obtain a replacement under warranty rendered me computerless for a good long time. I decided to stay offline and enjoy the experience.
I've been taking lots of pictures and accumulating many stories, so the regularly-scheduled fun will commence imminently. For now, I hope you'll all tune into the sound of silence and get in touch with the stuff that really matters. I did, and it made me realize I need to do it more often.
Your turn: Disconnecting. Please discuss.
