Try it sometimes: except for radio, which doesn't always require you to be sedentary while you participate, leave it all off.

Now what do you do? 

 
Try running a homestead, tending the animals, growing and harvesting food, mending fences, chopping wood for heat and cooking.  Waking and going to bed with the sun (except for tending the fires all night in shifts).  There is always something to do, that was life before electronics and still can be.  God bless chainsaws though.{#Mrgreen}

Yeah, a lot of Hemingway was semi-autobiographical, I think. I sure got the impression he felt it all a little more personally. Steinbeck started out as a journalist, so probably cultivated a skill for telling the story without becoming the story. He obviously felt for his characters, too, but not in the same visceral way.

I kid. I'm a kidder.

I didn't make it too far thru OTR either. Anyway, thanks for bumping the post from 2009  

 
Yup!   I can sit through back-to-back Porcupine Tree CDs on a road trip. Imagine. Tastes, eh?

Not that fond of Hemingway either but Steinbeck absolutely rocks.   It was a good post in 2009, it is still a good post in 2015. {#Smile}

Humility please.  Once the narcissism starts to creep in or colour things, it is not long before I bow out.  Maybe we should start a separate thread on the books we did not finish reading and why.

We used to ride bikes or hike and throw frisbees and have friends over. 

Now we send email and watch CSI, waiting to die.
 
That's very, ahem, drama-tic.

I watch about 2 hours worth of TV per week on my PC when lucky (if there's a series I like). We gave away our TV since we never used it.

I still read books. On my e-reader. {#Mrgreen}

Try throwing frisbees or riding a bike in two feet of snow. {#Wink}
