A Holiday from Electronics?

It's  the season of air-borne sleighs and wingless flying deer and other miracles. 

Might be a good time to ease off the more mundane magic of the Internet.  Just for a bit? A day?

(my computer has started behaving badly as I write this) 

I ran across this tropical image of the prayerful take-a-break spirit at Lost Iguana Resort near




 La Fortuna,Costa Rica.  May you have such a peaceful holiday season. 

(I'm swearing violently as I try to type this — fonts switching, cursor stalling!) 

 And a  serenely lovely start to the New Year.A

    I'm more into the "swearing violently" mode just now [life has a way of putting us there, doesn't it] , but the serenely lovely thing sounds  good.  I'll hold it as an aspiration – AFTER I've gotten good and through with the "swearing" part.

      And do enjoy the swearing, Mary! Y’all have a good set of holidays.

    I love the ending to this entry Peggy: it's honest and it also shows how we constantly have to balance our intentions with reality.
    I wrote something similar about losing my smart phone recently. Day four without it. Feels very strange and liberating at the same time!

      “Strange and liberating” is how it feels to me too, when I manage to venture there. Thanks, Mohadoha.

    Right on.  (Of course I'm responding by email!)  On Sundays try not to turn on the computer and usually get much of the day before I need a document.  Another option for me – running a retreat center – is to check email once a day.  Usually adequate and doesn't take much time.

      That takes such strength of character, John. I respond to almost every email bell. I heard recently that the thought of new information causes an endorphin rush — that’s my excuse.

    Beautiful photo, Peggy – and your expletives did not come through in the energy! 🙂  A peaceful, lovely holiday to you and to Bob!

      Same to you and yours, Billie. I carefully kept the expletive reports in parentheses.

    I SWEAR, you take excellent photos !  I'll be interested if, in your own interest, you can ignore E and social networking a while.  After the Withdrawal Tremens, who knows…?   I wonder if a regular rest period might prove a refreshing, rejuvinating, and even recreating [as in recreation, or perhaps even re-creating yourself in ways you want to be different than you were],
     regular ritual.  Aiki

      A regular electronic break? That’s pretty large, Aiki. Do you do that?

      Glad you like my pics, BTW.
