Break Tuesday March 13, 2007, 4 comments

I am back from a self-imposed break. I needed a week away from the computer, a week away from all the noise of the world and the noise of opinion other than my own. Sometimes we need to silence the outside noise so we can hear the small voice inside.

It was very beneficial. I feel far more centered, far more balanced. It’s been a really stressful time lately, and I was very far out of alignment.

The weather here improved from the bone-chilling cold that caused ice to fall from the CN Tower – though still a shock from the temperatures my girlfriend is used to. Because it was warmer, we could go for walks, and have some meaningful face-to-face conversation. This is not the best time of year to see Canada, but it was still a wonderful wonderful week.

Peace. It’s highly underrated, I tell you.

Good for you, Adrian. I try to take one full day off each week, which helps. But I know that I full week away from the computer would be just amazing. Maybe I’ll try it sometime.

It was invigorating, what can I say :)

Not underrated, but too seldom enjoyed. A day a week seems a good idea.
