Sun sun and more sun

lookingforsunshineshs2013I’ve been craving the end of winter and am off to sunny Mexico, so my next week’s post will be a little late. I may not be able to respond to your comments, and my fellow blogger’s posts,  but will do when I get back.

It’s always a weird feeling having the internet cut off. I could use it, but I begrudge those prices they charge in hotels, just as I won’t pay eight dollars for a bottle of water. Those tiny things irk me beyond words. I will happily plonk down some dosh for Maple Whiskey, but eight dollars for water?

I have to wonder if we all should take a day off from technology, no internet, Facebook Twitter, television, and just be unreachable for a few hours. You can’t go anywhere without being contacted, or sit in a coffee shop and be unreachable. Even with the phone on silent, it beams a little accusatory buss..you have messages. They are waiting. They know you are ignoring them…sigh… I always pick up.  Don’t you?

So stay safe and enjoy the day! Sun or no sun. I’m looking forward to reading your comments and your blog posts with a large latte in hand, and mobile switched off!  ( Well that’s the plan anyway! )

About susan sheldon

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

    Have fun! I’m planning a blog post on the inability to ‘switch off.’ Or at least that’s part of the post. Now, I just have to write it…

    Oh sun – could you possibly bring some back? I’m sure it won’t weigh down your suitcase too much.

  3. Ooh enjoy Mexico, Susan! And enjoy your time away from’th net!

    Oh shoot, I wish you’d written this earlier so I could perhaps meet you while you’re down here! Right now I’m staying in a little community about halfway between Ensenada and Rosarito. But, my dear, I hate to tell you this–if this is where you’re headed, we’ve had two days of rain and thunder and it’s a tad cool right now. Heading farther south, I hope!
