today, i did the undo-able. yes, i did it: i turned off my computer. for most of the day it sat there, lifeless, black, not pumping me full of useless status updates, not streaming the latest and greatest tunes, not stuffing my mind full of photos of hot folks wearing the hippest fashions, not updating me on the state of current catastrophes. just sitting there: black screened, lifeless, benign. it was liberating, not having the i.v. of pop culture overload to tap into at any moment. and i actually got a lot of work done, with minor emotional toil. so from here on out, i'm going to practice turning the computer off. because i realized: unless it's off, it's a constant presence. an addiction.
