When I learned only that the theme would be “Unplugged,” my mind went to the world of music, and my poem turned out to be a Cento taken from lines of music from some of my favorite performers from the 60′s to the 80′s. But Fred took it a lot further–addressing the value of leaving the smart phone, the computer, all the i-thingy’s in the off position for a while–a day, a week, or whatever you feel works for you. Fred offers some really valuable ideas.
I’ve been struggling with time management lately. I’m in the process of adapting a collection of poetry for the Kindle format, while trying to keep up with my domestic duties, making time for the hubby and kids (of the canine variety), gardening, blogging, and my publishing project. Oh, and an occasional round of (really pathetic) golf.
That being said, I need to take a break from blogging for a week, perhaps less, perhaps more, to focus on that poetry collection. If you don’t see me next Monday, you’ll know where I am.
Coming soon to a Kindle near you…and eventually to Create Space
Check this out: a couple of photos of our yard taken earlier this week, after a brief, but brutal hail storm…it looks like snow in August. Have a wonderful week.
