Why I Will Disconnect



"Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known."

-A.A. Milne

Our adventures will bring us to Tennessee tomorrow. It would be easy, I imagine, to carry a laptop and further my writing during the visit with my relative.
My Spouse suggested as much and I understood the very reasons.
That said, I expect to glean many valuable stories in the next while, and for those it is essential that instead, I simply stop and listen.
Disconnection of electrical appliances will never equate with disconnection of the mind.
I will return, and take up my pen once again. Until then, I remain temporarily and electronically unplugged.

Hepzibah,
What you said is very kind. Thank you.
Texican,
I was, thankfully, able to drink my own tea! What a relief.

Please look around, explore my writing, leave a crumb:
I welcome comments and thoughts.
