It’s time to haul out the little caravan and take a break; a break involving a slow and relaxing trip south, through New South Wales and Victoria.
It’s time to get away from the electronic world and its distractions.
No FaceBook, no Twitter, no news feeds.
No emails – unless, of course, we are tempted to stop in at a café that has wifi…(naughty?)
My phone will be used for necessary phone calls only. If it’s really important, we’ll eventually hear.
The world seems a toxic place right now with so many political situations around the globe festering on the brink of being (simply put) bad or mad.
But for a little while (for me and the bloke), it’s freedom from news about our Australian untrustworthy and self- serving politicians and their abhorrent behaviours.
It’s freedom from news of US’s execrable Donald Trump.
It’s freedom from stories of Russian interference and poisonings.
And freedom from reports about bloody cricketers.
Instead of catching up with The News, I’ll be browsing in op shops for books to read.
Back in a couple of weeks.
I choose to comment on social issues and write creatively on a variety of subjects - for a variety of audiences.
