I’m very curious to know how you felt during this tech-free hiatus, loss of connections, or the opposite: more autonomous and independent?
Well, I have a confession to make: At the end of each day, I glanced through my mails on my iPhone, using 3G, so I wasn’t completely disconnected.
Theoretically, if I were super-committed, I could have used the slug-like slow connection to catch up with my blogs, make posts even. But being me, I fell asleep long before I could muster the patience to do it.
That said, however, I was surprised I didn’t miss the internet too bad. Perhaps because I was busy, engaged with demanding non-internet projects. But the whole thing has left me quite empowered: it has cut through the fog of Facebook, Twitter, Blogging and surfing that I sometimes cloak myself in.
But I’m still struggling to get back to reading, most of all to writing, let’s see how that goes. For the moment there are too many things to do in a day, and not enough time to sit my butt down.
That will change, I hope. Soon.
