This morning Don and I we were talking about how in today's world we are all bombarded with so many digital things. Cell phones, computers, TV, radios, blogs, twitter, facebook, the internet, are all places that divide and compete for our attention. Many of these are essential to our work and life. In the course of a day we use all of them and sometimes we feel overloaded.
What helps diminish that feeling? For us, it's nature, birds, gardens and being outdoors. Just, even for a moment, watching a butterfly, seeing our bluebird, having a hummingbird come to sip nectar from our feeder just feet from our nose, smelling a rose in our garden, making a point to go out on our deck at night and watch the wonderful firefly fireworks going on right now — renews us, relaxes us, connects us and is the antidote for overload.
Enjoy your weekend and try some antidotes.
(Okay, okay, I am getting sucked into bloggers new templates and trying a new look for our blog, so our blog format and colors looks different than yesterday. I cannot resist. It's still the same blog. Blogger, still part of the overload.)
