12. A light.

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:03 pm by dawnfields310

A friend of mine who knows about this experiment just called and asked what I had been doing all day.  When I told him I’d been working on my blog he said, “So let me get this straight.  You’re not watching television anymore but now you’re spending all that newfound time writing about not watching television?”  Touche.  I guess we both thought I would have written an novel or something by now.

But I can tell you this, talking to him made me feel better.  I felt connected to the world again.  I’m really glad he called.  And it was that very feeling which confirmed that, for me without any doubt, I’m doing the right thing. And something I very much needed to do.  How did it get this way? How is it that I’ve cut myself off from everyone I used to know and the things I loved to do, trading it all in for imaginary characters and poorly written reality shows?
