GUESS WHO´S BACK?


Hey my friends! Thought I had kicked the bucket?? Hehehehe…

Truth be told, my under-maintenance post was a way of softening the fact that my lap top had broken down; a way of keeping my faith in the possibility of posting again at some time in the near future.

However, it did not take too much time to realize I was in the face of a slightly more complex situation: it turned out to be that my computer didn´t serve me just as a type writer machine (word processor, in the most broadly sense) but also as an alarm clock, phone device, T. V. set, movie theater, newspaper, stereo, library, friend´s club… you name it. “What a great invention!” I thought to myself –not too much of a great life though. Basically because without my computer I started feeling a little bit awkward, and I became aware of how dependant I had become not just on it but basically, on technology, and that did not really seem to be “natural” to me.

So I decided to start living a techno-free life, whenever that was possible, until fully recovered. I have to confess that it was not easy at all but little by little, with strong effort and self-determination, I began recuperating some basic abilities: first, the ability to say “hi” and smile to my neighbors; then the capacity to take short walks through the hood, looking at its surroundings, focusing my attention on its details and so on… I even got a brand new bicycle!

Living unplugged for a while was definitely one of the best experiences in my whole life. I understand that it would be kind of difficult (at least for me) to keep up with this particular human lifestyle, to avoid letting the means become the ends. But I am sure that I won´t miss any chance to ride my brand new bicycle through the city and who knows? Maybe get lucky and meet a precious bicycle girl!

ya te había contado que me gusta andar en bici? jeje

que bien eso que decidiste, hace poco me fui de vacaciones a unas cabañas y no teníamos nada de eso (tecnología) bueno, solo electricidad. Es sorprendente como te acostumbras a no depender ya del cel, ni de la tele, te organizas y ya.

trato de hacerlo, pero mi trabajo depende de estar en la compu, así que la tentación es mucha, pero me limito más a solo cuando tengo trabajo y en los ratos libres que esta me deja.

que gran ejemplo el tuyo y que gusto leerte, se nota!!

me encanta que estés de regreso, un beso.
