The immediacy of it all

Alright, I'll admit it. I'm old. I remember life before cell phones and email. I remember long drives with the radio as the only sound I heard. I remember eating out with friends and family and not being interrupted by the whims of others.

Several weeks ago I just decided that I'm tired of the world having immediate access to me every moment of the day. I began leaving my cell phone in the car when I went to someone's home or out to dinner. I began turning it off (gasp) when I wanted to think or read or sleep.

I've discovered that I like it. And to top it off, I honestly am not certain where my cell phone is right now. But, please don't call so that I can find it. This is nice.
