Whoa! That was cool. Yesterday’s post about life without a TV generated wonderful comments. Thank you. This must be a topic we can relate to.
So you want an update of day 3 without TV? Well, truth be told, shows I might really want to watch are available on my computer. Who knew? Y’all probably did, didn’t you? I found out yesterday. I didn’t watch anything, but it was nice to know that I could.
Do I turn the TV on for noise? To distract me? To give the illusion of company?
With periodic background music, I read and wrote and cooked, and even cleaned a bit. I didn’t seem to need distractions as I enjoyed my own company.
However, during this blissful TV-less day, I admit to having rather grandiose ideas. Is this a danger when left alone too long?
Getting out in the cold, wet air last night to teach my first class of the semester quickly challenged that thinking.
It was before going to bed, when I automatically turn on the TV, that I realized this.
