Can I Disconnect Even for Awhile

I heard a program yesterday on NPR about a couple who decided they had had enough of their life in LA. They felt like they were permanently attached to their digital devices. They picked up and traveled for nine months, and did not use any digital device. When they got back to LA, they felt like aliens.

So I started to wonder about the role of digital devices in my life. I am also permanently attached. But this is what I do for a living. And I actually love it. Maybe its because I live in Reidsville, North Carolina and not LA. But I really enjoy being totally connected.

But the question arises, could I take a week completely off? I went to Florida last month and brought my cadre of digital devices. But maybe I should have left them here.

These are just a few thoughts.
