The New Tv

I suggest you turn off your computer as well - it is the new TV and we spend too much time on it entertaining ourselves. And those phones we are tethered to, shut them off as well as they aren't doing our world any much more good.

And I should listen to the original author of this as they are right.

Disentangle yourself from technology, step away from the desk and go outside once in a while to see what beauty still lies out there. Play in it - remember it how it was, preserve it, enjoy and keep it for the future. We may need it someday.

I don't have any pets - don't want the fuss - but I love going up north and seeing the real un-tamed variety. That always makes me happy. I just don't get up north or away enough. <br />
<br />
We have wild squirrels and raccoons (everybody's pets like them or not) and the occasional city mouse (like them in spirit - just don't like them in my house. <br />
<br />
I had both dogs and cats and always thought walking the cat was more fun than the dog as the dog for the most part would do what we told him - the cat? That was another story.<br />

Yes by all means communing with nature and animals would be wonderful for you. I kind of have a rule of thumb that I go by; if I can't take my dog, then I don't go. Try going by that rule and in a month when you look into the mirror, you won't recognize yourself.lol

I should spend more time outside - lack of balance and living with a city. I don't necessarily have the TV on - but the computer is the new TV - and I am on it ALL the time with my job and at home. So, communing with nature and with animals should be increased in my case!

I spend a lot of time outside with animals. Time outside is vital to my existence. I find the world of the computer very emotionally draining sometimes but I tell myself it would be good to learn how to deal with the world of people also. So I find balance is the answer.

I agree - fun fun fun - but outside and in the world with people, that is where the real fun fun fun happens!<br />
<br />
So go outdoors, play with all of the boys and girls and have fun fun fun!<br />

No No No "spend too much time on it entertaining ourselves" you can't make me. I don't wanna work always. I want fun fun fun! ;~)

That is nicely written. Indeed, we have always needed it. We're a part of "it," just as all the things that is out there are a part of each other. I don't see how we can cut ourselves off from that.
