For the past week, we, here at The Grut, have been without cable. No internet, No television.
I am not going to lie, there were times that it was aggravating. But, on the whole, it was nice. It encouraged more conversation, more walks, more porch sits…
It made me want to take a break from my phone. Lately I have found myself feeling bogged down by the constant steam of texts and the need to "keep up" with friends by texting about nothing, instead of having a face to face conversation where we actually catch up. I know phones are handy and useful, but I am just contemplating taking a little absence from mine.
