Detaching From the World…For 48 minutes

I’ve been up so far for about 48 minutes. I have not yet turned on the TV, nor have checked Facebook or Twitter. So, at this very moment, all is good in the world. I know Hurricane Irene is working her destructive path all along the east coast. I know there’s drama on Facebook. I know there are some great zings on Twitter. But for now, I know nothing. It is kind of relaxing.

But after 50 minutes….you start to feel disconnected. Funny, growing up, you would kill for that 10-30 minutes your parents would allow you to go online. AOL. Old school dial-up (I can still remember that sound).

Now, if you can even go 10-30 minutes disconnected from the world, it’s quite the detachment.
