Enjoying home. Enjoying friends and family. Enjoying food. Having a walk. Enjoying being in the moment and not always staring at a screen. I think that's why I prefer a paper book than reading on an e-reader. I don't want to start an argument about which is better. I know it's much more convenient when flying to bring your whole library on one small device. But for me, I prefer the physicality of a paper book.
I heard someone saying that 2017 is going to be the year of low tech. People are going to realise that their lives aren't always made easier by technology because sometimes the tech is ruling you, not the other way around. I'm not talking everyone's going to leave society to live in a wooden hut in the woods. I mean paring back on tech. If I could manage writing with only my Neo, I would, but I need a laptop for blogging, editing etc. I don't have a tablet because my smart phone is *enough* everywhere internet for me.
I went on a writing retreat in Essex and there was no internet for the whole weekend. The wifi was only available in the club house - miles from our caravan. And the 4g signal was non existent on the whole caravan site. I loved it. Others did too, once they'd got used to it.
We're trying to have one or two evenings a week when we switch off the TV an hour early and just sit in the living room with the fire crackling away and we read. It's a wonderful thing to do before sleep. It's very restful and makes you appreciate the hugge simple pleasures of life.
Give it a go! Let me know how you get on!
