It’s a warm evening and I’m laying back in the grass watching the clouds drift by overhead. When was the last time you did this? No phone, no music in my ears, nothing but my thoughts and the sky above me.
It’s hard to unplug from the world sometimes. Our phones and other digital devices keep us constantly connected, but I think in many respects they disconnect us from the world around us too. I check the screens in my life as much as anyone else, but I have to say that it was really refreshing to just lay in a field of grass and enjoy that simple pleasure this evening.
