I need a vacation.

I just need a break from the circuited world for awhile. I'm so sick of the beeping, the buzzing, the fans, the blinking lights. I just want some peace.

The most idyllic thing in the world would be to just sit outside under blankets and watch the snow fall. Smell the frost, and listen to nothing but that soft, crushing silence. Watch my breath make clouds, and look at the moon. What I wouldn't give.

I'm sick of the constant e-mail, the incoming calls and texts. I want actual human interaction. Face to face. What happened to eye-contact and the art of conversation? I want to have ridiculous discussions about trees, travel -- anything. I just want to talk, really talk. No distractions. No TV in the background. No movie underscore.

I want to read a book by the fire with a cup of tea. I want everything to be tactile and tangible, not digital. I want to use my hands for something other than punching keys and buttons.

It doesn't have to last forever. Just for little while. Just long enough to prove that I'm not a slave to this.

We should all get together and go chill at a cabin with a fire and some hot cocoa.

I seriously love the way you write. There is a reason you do what you do ♥

But I definitely agree. I've always preferred talking in person to anything else. And the sad thing is, most people are the opposite way. I wish people could stop relying so much on technology and get back to interacting with their fellow man. Maybe then people we'd all be able to understand each other better.

Thank you so much. That's one of the more beautiful compliments I've ever received.

I agree with you completely, I think we would understand one another better, I think there'd be more tolerance, and I think we'd all be more enriched.

The thing that is so difficult is that technology is so pervasive -- it's in our pockets, we can toss it in our backpacks. People will sit in a group and still text or IM others, people will stop a live conversation to answer a call. I think those kinds of actions build walls, because they make others feel like they're not the priority. The device is, the other person is.

I don't like it.
