This was retro day. I had no internet service. I kept experiencing little disappointed surprises each time I thought about its use. Then I just embraced it and went for a walk, a long walk. Instead of using my bicycle, I plotted a route to the store (where I could check emails) then to the garden, then to grocery store. Before wheels, everyone had time to reflect as they walked. A prescribed activity (walking, sitting for a sermon, swimming laps) that doesn't require concentration--frees the mind of the To Do list; lets it wander, unconstrained, for a time. Refreshing.
