Back to blogging. Back to internet.
I had expected to heave a big sigh of relief, but instead came to realize a few things:
It is possible to live without internet. (for short periods at least?)
There is a whole world out there which knows nothing about the internet, and it does not affect their lives in any way whatsoever. (This includes my parents.)
Your blog attracts visitors, whether you’re writing or not. (Hurray for search engines.)
It is possible to miss people you’ve never seen or met. (Includes nearly all my blog friends.)
Playing with your dog after a whole year beats browsing the internet.
Aging parents grow older each time you see them.(You need to call them, see them more often.)
For those interested, here is a slide-show from my trip.
