I was in the middle of a situation where I needed (or so I thought) to be in contact with some individuals, and I had my smart phone with me.
I use my phone as my camera, so every time I wanted to take a picture, there were the emails and texts.
Which, of course, I had to check out.
"Snap", went the photo button. And as I saw each text, or read each email, my blood pressure rose.
I had a headache, and it got worse with each passing hour.

Even a historic building could not make me smile. I wore the burdens of my world.

I love my iPhone. I love the photos it takes. But I hate being connected. Finally, I sat in a park in downtown Auburn, New York, and questioned what I was trying to do.
Sometimes one just has to unplug. And I swore that this week I would do a lot more unplugging.
Fear not, I am not stopping my blog - I still intend to post daily. But I just may not be as accessible this week.
Have you ever unplugged?
