I've GOT to stop spending this much time on the computer. This thread inspires me to break out of my winter habit that has grown too big. I do some things I'm proud of, but I am addicted to reading stuff in the computer format. I love the way I can follow any train of thought, research an unfamiliar person or event or word, stay current with news, politics, markets, new writers and their work, music, inspiration, recipes, friends, etc. All from my office chair or bed or couch or kitchen or backyard.
I get in a hour of vigorous workout every day right after coffee, or I might talk myself out of it.
I always accept a chance to help someone that calls: a hospice patient, my cancer retreat co-host, my wife, our neighborhood association board, a friend, another fisherman who needs extra weight in the front of his boat. But being retired has slowed down the calls I get. I have noticed my answer to most service people or doctor's offices asking for a time that works for me is "whatever works for you."
I work in the garden every day and write stories for my writing class and a local paper. I cook our main evening meal 80% of the time because I like to, and ride my bike more than I drive (to the club and groceries at least).
But I HAVE to stop staring at this screen so much. That's going to be my NY revolution. I just decided. I will start by allowing 2 hours/day. Let's see if I can savor this wonderful life outside the net for a while.
