Unconnecting to connect

I had a bit of extra time on my hands this morning and instead of frittering it away on the net, I grabbed a fresh canvas and some brushes and started painting.

It felt good, really good. My mind stopped buzzing and I felt real, solid. Happy even.

I find it easy at the end of a long day to come home and spend hours in front of the computer. It numbs my busy mind but it doesn't fulfil me in any real way. I read blogs and see images of other peoples lives and projects, think about all the things I could do (if I had the time!) and nearly always end up feel discontented with my life.

This weekend I am going to spend some real time away from the screen, unconnect so I can start to feel connected to my own life again.

I'm still going to blog everyday though!
