The phone being left at home was the best thing that's happened so far.
I've had a day without checking two email accounts, the facebook page, the words and phrases with friends games, the weather, the time in tokoyo, and even the clock. WOW!
On my break I actually had time to sit and review the NYTimes as I used to before smartphone days, getting to the Op-Ed page and pondering and even feeling like writing again. Something about the newspaper, reading and glancing and taking time to let your mind be without distraction, that allows the thoughts to gel and initiative to write surfaces.
The article that caught my attention today was in the Op-Ed section, regarding our food.
Being I've been focusing on our agriculture and agribusiness and the fields in particular, I read this article and thought it something worth sharing.

And yay, my lunch is over and I was able to spit out a few words again, just for the hell of it.
