I went five days without checking my email. This has never happened before. Oddly, I did not plan it. It just sort of happened, and I am sincerely, pleasantly surprised. The scurry I’ve been married to for so long is losing its grasp on me. I am slipping free from the compressor.
My cyber absence came to light today, when someone who’d emailed me 5 days ago called to get the information he needed. I gave it to him, and life simply drifted along. No cracks formed in the Earth beneath me. Nothing burst into flame. I smiled. It was just…ok.
These are strange days. Strange days, indeed, and I can only hope this is the earliest light of dawn breaking over simpler times.
