Taking a break - What this really means in our parents language is, no work, no laptops or blackberry's, no calls or text msgs (ok,maybe a few), no worry lines, no "thinking"!
In my world too it would mean the same, but alas, can we stay away from our gadgets? No ways, God forbid if that happens we will be cold turkeying, thinking why has the phone not rang yet or imagining it ring when it is in power off mode, or why is the red light not blinking on the BB why is the world so slow and not working!?!
What are we? Slaves to our work?:-) I think in a way we are, right?!:-)
On one of our holidays we friends decided to put the world behind us, and simply be. Which meant we kept our phones off as soon as we landed in the resort and switched it on only when we were at the departure terminal 4 days later. Otherwise the phone was used just once a night daily to call home and check all's well
It was beautiful to not be disturbed at all, sleep, eat, enjoy life, without any intrusions of any kind especially the kinds we have so got used to:-)
I hope that we will take such breaks ever so often , does a world of good for the soul.
