Have you decided to continue with your blog? I am really happy if you have! I miss you!!!!


I thought it was really cool that you were signing off. Speaking from a personal perspective, I think we all tend to spend too much time in front of the screen. It detracts from whatever form of 'real' experiences we have left. I have made an effort to spend less time online, and I admit, I find it challenging. I am grateful for some of the information I have found, and relationships I have formed, but too much time in front of screens can't be a good thing. I am trying to be more selective with my time, as a new mom. It is challenging, since I work from home on, guess what, the computer... ugh.

I saw a great comic in Adbusters recently. It showed someone hunched in front of the computer and said 'work.' Then the next bubble had the same image and it said 'play.' It was followed by the same image of that individual hunched in front of the computer and it said 'rest.' I paraphrase, but you get the idea.
