Write to you in a month, friends
Okay, don't freak out . . . I'll be back to blogging on the 20th of January, exactly one month from now. You see, my dad has put in place a one month internet fast for the whole family starting tomorrow. He said that in this post I could call him my "crazy" father, but I (albeit reluctantly) agree with him about the fast. And I don't think we are both crazy. I look forward to this new season in life and the many adventures we will have away from the computer screen!
The inspiration for this fast came from the documentary Captivated. I would recommend the film to anyone who wants to take a serious look at how much "screen time" is in their lives. Check it out at this link: Captivated the Movie
So, blog followers, this is your official heads up in case you begin to wonder. Contrary to the popular rumor two weeks from now, I will not have dropped off the face of the Earth! Instead, I will have merely stepped back into the Stone Age. If you want to get ahold of me or my family, try making smoke signals. If that doesn't work . . . um, make a bigger fire and try again!
No, you can still e-mail my mom, for as it is a necessary mode of communication, her e-mail is not part of the one month lock down. Also, you have a pretty good shot of reaching us on the telephone . . . maybe better than usual.
A merry Christmas to everyone, and a happy New Year! I'll catch up with you all in a month!
P.S. If you are inclined to comment, please know that I will not be responding after 11:59 PM tonight. ;0)
