In about 36 hours my phone and internet connections will be disconnected. Then, on Saturday we move into our new house! I’m excited and apprehensive at the same time. I’m not one for change, but will embrace the coming changes with open arms because it’s time to start a new life.
That new life will mean more writing and reading time. I can’t wait for these things. It will also mean a whole new routine too, but I’m actually looking forward to that too. Heck, I intend to throw everything I normally do out the window and am willing to start again. I feel cleansed just thinking about it.
Decisions will have to be made. One of those decisions is whether or not we will reconnect to the internet after we’ve settled. Seriously, we may decide not to. A month or so ago, the prospect worried me, but now I feel differently about it. Now, I think I could cope easily without the internet and perhaps, without the distraction, I would do more productive things – and I’m not only thinking that the benefits will be good for my writing either.
Of course, in a month or two I might do a complete about turn on this matter, but decisions can always be changed. I’m not worried about that at all.
In the meantime, I’m going offline from 3 April 2009 for at least two weeks. I’ll have no internet access at all, so don’t expect any activity from me…anywhere on the world wide web…during that time frame. From 20 April I will have limited access during work hours, depending on how busy I am.
While I’m gone, I’ll ask you to leave a comment and tell me what you would do with yourself if you had no internet, no TV, no telephone and you had 24 hours to fill in. What would you do with that time?
