Hello once more! This is a ridiculously early post, New York time. It’s before 5:30 am.
Ugh! It’s also called “jet lag.”
Yes, yes, it’s great to be back in the Catskills for a bit:
I wrote most of two novels here. Now you see why! 😉
But when you can’t access the net for a whole 24 hours? How do you feel?
Totally out of touch, that’s what. You know there’s a whole world out there. Hereabouts, you stand outside and hear nothing but…. well, not much. Where is everyone?
Then when you manage to log back in, you realize you may never catch up. There are hordes of emails. Facebook is also insistently telling you about all the notifications and tags of you that you’ve missed. And on About.me, you see there’ve been so many views of you – and you’re flattered of course! – that they’ve gone “99+” and stopped counting:
Once “reconnected,” no matter how remote you are physically, you don’t ever feel completely isolated. You know that, no matter what, the moment you click online you’re in a “crowd” even if in your own physical world the nearest crowd is miles away.
Hope you’re having a good Wednesday, wherever you are. 🙂
