How Do You Unplug?
Pocket Journal Giveaway


1. Read my post.  
2. Leave a comment.  
3. Wait until Halloween (with your fingers crossed) when I'll announce a winner of this 2 1/2 x 3 inch pocket journal with red, embossed leather.
 

Do you ever find yourself suffering from digital overload? Phones and computers, tablets and tvs seem to invade so many hours of our days. Do you feel a vague sense of longing for something pleasantly tactile to do with your hands or just to be utterly unplugged? I certainly do and this can be easily remedied by reaching back into your memory for those lovely activities that the modern age has nearly forgotten. For me, I write a letter to a friend – on carefully chosen paper, with a favorite pen, at my wooden desk with a cup of tea or some Irish music to accompany me. Or else I walk over to my vinyl collection and put some Dylan on the record player.  Perhaps I am more nostalgic than you for physical things, physical movements. So I wonder, in what treasures of yesteryear do you like to take part? What is your cure for these digital days? How do you unplug? I want to know....
Leave your answer below in comments (be sure to include an email where I can reach you). I’ll randomly pick a winner on Halloween and announce the lucky recipient. Journals like these are always available in my Etsy Shop too.

I unplug with a good paperback book...not a kindle, ipad, etc. I like to turn the pages and shut it when I'm all done. :) ~Patti

Patti - I'm happy to hear that the e-book hasn't overtaken the world. Nothing like a little weathered book. Don't forget to leave an email.

Laura - Everyone needs a good tea party!

Getting away with the family for a weekend camping trip. No phones. No computers. No day to day agendas. Just relaxing making memories with the family. arlene.durbin@gmail.com
