I took a step away from my screen last week and felt alive for the first time in over a year. Reliance is not the reason I want to watch my screens. It was a shock how deep seated and hidden the reliance is. Boredom warns of it, but vast emptiness of time one concieves when finally rid of the screen shouts loudly in our minds eye. Attempting to fill the long hours that are not whittled away by 30 second kitties and twelve minute YouTube videos. Little by little our life floods back to us. Maybe, only screen addict’s will be able to understand. Laundry gets done timely, dishes finished, chore list all checked done. Happiness returns pushing past dullish memories of hazy gray screens filled by pixel colors. Filling us with Life’s gay and mellow glory days.
