Scott and I are considered dinosaurs. We don’t carry our cell phones with us. When we are off duty from work and responsibilities we don’t want to be found. That is our time to rejuvenate our energy. Scott didn’t even have a cell phone until a few years ago when his mother had an extra one she couldn’t use because it was too technical. It certainly wasn’t because we were never trained in Information Technology. Both our careers forced us to be early adaptors of it. Scott was even in the first graduating I.T. class in our city at a local college. One night a store clerk was trying to get his email and seemed frustrated with grandpa not wanting to give it out. I am sure he thought we had no clue of how to use a computer. We laughed about later it in the car.
Mary’s recent message was all about disconnecting from technology and the bustle of the city. She wants us to get out into nature disconnected from our Smartphones, tablets and mp3 players. Walking in nature allows us to think and hear our own thoughts without distractions. So be a dinosaur like us and leave your technology at home or in the car while you get out into nature.
And this is According To Mary!
