In the next few weeks I will do some travelling. During that time I will have limited access to the internet. I will have my phone and will mostly be where phones work. But I may not have access to the holy grail of wifi for good portions of it.
Personally I do not think I will have that much of a problem with being off line. I think its healthy to disconnect. I will have things like books (the paper kind), knitting, one of my looms for a portion of it, and a crossword puzzle book. There will also be time for things like 'conversation' without any emojis. We may or may not have TV either. But we will have swimming in a lake, boating on said lake, napping, reading, and other congenial activities. We will also have the ability to ignore all political news - which might be the best part.
I will have the next five days of no technology. Then I will be home for a couple of days. Then we will depart for 10 days of limited technology.
I realize there will be some others who might freak out at the thought of disconnecting. Those people are probably in the most need of unplugging. I used to work with a guy who would go to the beach for a vacation with his wife and four kids and then wonder why his wife would get mad at him when he made work calls from his cell phone while on the beach.
I wonder how many others can unplug for several days at a time without going crazy. So put down your phones, turn off the TV, get outside and breath some fresh air while you figure out how to fill your time.
