May was not meant to be a month of silence. I did not intend to disappear. My plan with the slow technology experiment was only to take a break from social media – not the blog. I had planned to write a post about the role television plays in my life, these days. I had also planned to write a post about how I use technology, as a whole. Of course, as I continue to learn again and again, things don’t always go as planned. Life is not always in our control. In fact, I think it was Lauryn Hill who said, “We can’t plan life. All we can do is be available for it.”
And that’s exactly what I did in May. I made myself available to the two creatures who needed me more than anyone or anything else: our family dogs.
