I have decided to take a break from all the gadgetry in my life for the whole month of March -- computer, email, cell phone, television, news, and yes, even my camera. I am going to take this time to try to become more directly and simply engaged with my world, rather than see-hear-feel it through the interpretations and distractions of my current busy daily life. I'm hoping to return to "stuff" with an altered consciousness and lifestyle -- one that is more tuned into the moment, more patient, slower-paced, and less gadgety. I'm excited. Maybe I'll make this an annual effort. Maybe it will be Spring Cleaning rather than Spring Break. May your March be full of warmth and spring awakening.
