A good article from the Associated Press on getting away from technology for a while. Easier said than done, it is wonderful to take a trip and not take your laptop or cell phone or PDA or . . . In the article, one person said she felt “free.”
Those in high school and college have grown up with multiple technologies and may be able to handle it more easily than those of us that area older. However, there has to be good things said for doing “other” things, e.g., hiking, meeting friends for lunch, baking, watching movies.
If it wasn’t for the fact that, after a break from technology, I come back to more messages and contacts than before, I’d do it more.
