    Isn’t it bizarre that we tend to veer towards the very activities that make us feel the worst about our own existence. It’s like a self-destructive streak that unites us all. I constantly fight the urge to zone out while real life passes me by – like a mosquito to the ugliest shade of luminescence ever beheld.

      Yes! It’s a ‘quick fix’… but we’re left feeling worse, so often.

  5. Maggie

    I love Sarah’s commitment to finding hallowed moments in withered garlic bulbs and disarray…I’m training my eyes and my heart to see this way, too.

  7. The Accidental Housewife

    Yes! That poem sums up exactly why I went screen free yesterday – I needed to live my real life, to be reminded of my own corner of wonder.

    I love the imagery of the kids rescuing her!

      I’m glad you enjoyed it! I think I need to go screen free more often… 🙂
