The first time I unplugged from the world was right before I entered high school. Spending a week as alone as possible has been an infrequent ritual since – a periodic respite to recharge. Whether an act of safety (like an auto-shut-off switch for your life,) deliberate vacation, or one day of avoiding someone (usually a woman) that simply crept into seven this has been a part of my life for which I am usually grateful.
Even though nothing is wrong, life is good, and my optimism is unabated, I have spent the last week or so away from the trappings of the electronic world.
I’ll see you all in the morning, and thanks to all of the people who sent emails of concern.
