Self Gratification

Lent is coming.  I am so relieved.

I will get to give up television for a month and a half.  I willl experience much during this time, and I will have no t.v. to clutter up what I am experiencing. It is like waking up from a long drugged sleep when I quit watching television.  I notice for the first time in months what is going on around me.  I get the house cleaned, the bills organized and paid and friends called or emailed.  I plan and shop for our meals.  I exercise.  I read after supper and go to bed early.  I suddenly have room in my life to live. 

That stupid black box sucks up me and gives nothing back.  I do realize that my television is like a gun, it is the user who is the problem.  I avoid real life by watching fake life.  I substitute passive reception for active learning.  I am not the first one to recognize the connection between tube viewing and eating.  I take in and get or give nothing back.  It is all about me.  Self gratification with diminishing returns.  Except my weight that does not diminish.

I am fine.  I am snowed under.  A foot of snow fell this week.  Oh well, this too shall melt. 

I will be writing more...often.

love bea

Hi Lynn, this is Linda MC. I have observed my own news boycott for over a year. I feel so much better! If there is something important, you will hear it at the Post Office. I am concentrating on the relationships that I have here, and that is enough. We just might need to coddle ourselves.

Great to hear from you. I've been hibernating, and the tv is involved. Old movies mostly. My sedative. Looking forward to more posts!

Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
several weeks of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods
to prevent hackers?
