Tomorrow (Sunday) morning I’m going to declare myself “Temporarily Out of Order.”
I might even write that on a Post-It note and stick it to my forehead.
Tomorrow and Monday, I will not spend more than two hours per day at my computer. I will not check most lists or groups. I will not visit Facebook. I will not log in to Twitter.
Let me repeat that. I will not log in to Twitter.
During the morning, I will exercise, drink coffee, and read fiction. In the afternoon, I will pull a few weeds, drink iced tea and read fiction. And then I’ll come back and tell you how I did.
You know, like, did I have withdrawal symptoms? Was I sore after exercising for the first time in weeks? Could I keep my mind from wandering as I tried to read sentences longer than 140 characters?
This isn’t going to be easy. I hope you know that.
