Since I started this blog more than two years ago, I’ve never taken a break for more than a day or two. But this afternoon I’m leaving on a family vacation, and have made the momentous decision NOT TO TAKE MY LAPTOP.
I’m actually feeling a little separation anxiety!
We’re going to visit some friends who live in Denmark, which, by utter coincidence, happens to be ranked the #1 happiest country in the world, according to recent studies. So although I won’t be posting to my blog, I will be doing continual happiness research.
I love having my laptop with me at all times, and I feel a constant need to write, but it is definitely an inclination that pulls me away from my family. I’m constantly sneaking off to add just one note to this or that document. In fact, at this very minute, everyone is making pancakes, and I’m typing this.
So I decided that for this vacation, I’d leave the laptop behind so that I could enter into the moment better. I will report back in a week.
