View from a train
Working from my computer, it feels like I’m always “on”. Constantly feeling the buzz of text messages, seeing the blinking light of another alert, another email. Missed calls, status updates, filling people in on when I’m available, filling my schedule to meet various demands.
Being so connected, so open, makes me feel overly exposed and available.
Sometimes it’s nice to get away, to escape, to unplug, and to have a little adventure all alone. Not for Facebook, not for Instagram, not for friends, or family, or to have a story to share.
Just for me.
