Unplugging to Survive.


Above my back door I have one of those silly cottage quotes. Most days I pass under it without reading it…some days it makes me pause.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Life is speeding up to a dangerous pace. Twitter and facebook are cracking open our brains and we vomit our thoughts on a moment by moment basis. Where do we go from here? Our children live in a world of instant gratification, what will they look like as teens, as adults?

I have no idea what will happen in 2012, but if ever we needed a reset button, it's now. We're so wired in, the thought of taking a 5 day escape from technology is beyond comprehension for most of us. Here's an article about a team that took on the challenge and what scientists found.

Could you do it? Could you leave technology behind for a weekend? Are you prepared to leave it behind for good?
