i'm heading off on an alpaca adventure with joyce, but wanted to share my birthday bouquet and a few other things before i go.
my first week of sabbatical. delicious. i cooked. i read. i wrote. i sat. i surfed.
my second week of sabbatical i want to cook, read, write, sit, walk, sketch something everyday. surf less.
leslie shared this link to practice being human a zine/pdf about giving up technology. so so good. i remember when i switched internet providers and was off the grid for a month. i loved it! of course i wasn't completely off because i was going to the mcdonald's or starbuck's parking lot to get email each evening. still i remember the feeling of spaciousness and possibility. if you aren't so connected to the internet in the first place you probably won't understand the feeling that happens when you disconnect. but i want more of that. MORE. so somewhere between here and alpaca country i'm going to stop and buy a stopwatch. i have an idea that i think will work for me. will share it in the coming days.
i'll be off the grid completely till i get home. see you sunday!
