Life Off Screen
Traveling, especially on overcast days when the sky threatens to storm, is my favorite way to disconnect from technology. I head to the mountains, where a cell signal can’t be found and I’m forced to observe the world around me. You don’t realize how much you miss out on until you take the time to let your surroundings overwhelm you: listen to the wind blowing through the trees, inhale the scent of pine and freshly damp dirt, watch how the raindrops follow the curvature of the leaves and fall silently to the ground. Take it all in and recharge. Enjoy your life off screen.
