It has been a few days since I last posted an entry to my blog. It just seems like there is always so much going on lately and I get so tired by the day’s end! I really will try to do better.
I cannot believe it is already December. Does anyone know where this year went? Time seems to be zipping right along, paying no heed to our desires for “just a little more time”!
For years, I have had a desire to have a “Christmas cabin” deep in the woods. Far enough away to not have to worry about electricity and such. A place to escape from all the hoopla and just to spend time doing the simple things in life! I have to say that as much as I enjoy computer time, I really enjoy doing things the old-fashioned way.
When is the last time you wrote a grocery list? Played a board game? Lit candles and left the electric lights turned off? Sat and read through the newspaper? Read a magazine? Opened a book and took a deep whiff of the smell of new book? We have become so attached to our electronics, it is hard to step backwards!
I guess one of the reasons I would love to have my little cabin to escape to is to gather my wits. Sometimes it just seems like there is too much, too fast. Information spreads like wildfire, and while that can be a good thing, it also puts stress on us. I know for a fact that when there is too much stress, I start having breathing issues. That probably isn’t the only reason, but it certainly contributes. What is wrong with doing things a bit more slowly and doing a thorough job?
Okay, I will get off my soapbox for now. I realize my dream is just that and perhaps will never be made real. I guess that is okay, too. I can always escape in my mind, after all!
Do you have any special dreams for Christmas?
