I am doing something revolutionary, something I haven’t done in years. I expect it to improve my life and perhaps help me relax.
I am going on vacation for two weeks without my computer.
How I will handle being untethered remains to be seen. If I want to write, I will make notes in a notebook. Egads. Remember back when we wrote things by hand? No, some of you might not. I remember when computers became commonplace in American journalism and I was appalled. Really? Writers were supposed to compose on a machine, like robots? Well, meet Pat, happy robot.
OK. Full disclosure. I will still have my iPhone, and I can still check email. So I can still be connected, but it will be more difficult for me to actually work. More difficult, I say, but probably not impossible.
I am trying to sync my new Surviving Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Facebook page with my phone and that is not going as well as I would like, but if I get it figured out, I will check in every now and then on Facebook with a link or two. If you don’t hear from me until mid-April, know you are all on my mind and in my prayers.
