There are few times that I feel more at peace, more in tune, more Zen, if you will, than when I force myself to unplug. ~ Harlan Coben
I’m not so sure Harlan.
Because I keep reaching for it, but it’s not there.
I don’t know what time it is, having gotten rid of the clock several years back.
I don’t know how I’ll wake up on time to go to work tomorrow. I threw out my radio/alarm clock a few days ago.
What if someone needs to call me? I got rid of my landline a year ago.
What if I miss an important text? What if someone’s crushed because they think I’m ignoring them?
Those were my thoughts on Wednesday when I forgot my Blackberry at work. I noticed at home when I reached into that special compartment of my purse.
“No biggie,” I thought. “I’ll update my Facebook to let people know I forgot my phone. I’ll send an email to work, if I’m not there it’s because there’s no alarm to wake me.”
Peace? In tune? Zen?
That’s not what I felt…

Do you reach for it when it’s not there?
