Distracting from my loves

I am still holding the internet at arms length. I do find that when I go back online for whatever reason I am stuck on it for ages. I keep talking about it because I find it very facinating. I know it’s the chemicals in my brain reacting to a stimuli that causes me happiness. I’m comfortable with that. I think I’ve got to the point that I have started to resent the internet for taking me away from others things that cause me happiness. Nature, TV, books, music etc. There are digital versions of all these things but that’s not the point.

I did some of the garden earlier and the smell of the dirt was intoxicating. It was wonderful. Give me a digital version of that!
