Fortunately, we're not going anywhere this spring break. We'll just stay in our sweet little house, not breaking the bank by buying gas.
Isn't it funny how language changes? Just a few years ago, this could not have been a joke. The internet has influenced not only the way we speak and write, but they way we think: more in terms of connections and jumping around link-crazy. A kind of maniacal multi-tasking. Or perhaps nothing changes. Consider the fact that it was about 100 years ago that E.M. Forster implored us to "only connect."
I'm disconnecting right now, for a few days, from the internet, going to focus on non-virtual reality for a while, going to do things like take long beach walks walks, write and read for hours in the morning, and wander around with my dogs and Annie. I want time to slow down on Spring Break so I really feel it and experience it. I want to "only connect" to life.
Have a great holiday, everyone.
