Day 61

Life without an internet connection.

Not by design, an aspect of living in rural Nova Scotia that I’m really enjoying. The first 3 days were weird and anxiety ridden, but that quickly morphed into a re-establishing of my autonomy and a real de-cluttering of life in general. No television and no radio, time has a re-calibrated meaning. Rather than endlessly distract moments with research, entertainment, social media, advertising, negativity, fear tactics, nothingness etc... I now am faced with the question, "What do I really want to be doing?" and then I go do that. It’s an incredible feeling, taking life into your own hands.
