I spent the weekend alone. With the exceptions of some people at shops and FaceTiming with G, I was alone for most of it. And I decided to spend it offline, with only a morning glance at email and my RSS feed. I listened to several episodes of On Being, I finished a great book, I watched Chef’s Table, and I journaled for pages and pages. And right now, based on all that, I have several words that kept coming up and there may well be an essay rattling around in my head. Alone time, focused time, not multitasking, it was sooooooo good and it reminded me that I need to do it more.
