Today’s world is laden with Swarms. Whether they be the traffic as you go to work, or the shoppers as you buy your groceries. It can be a fight to find peace and serenity.
As hard as it can be, I have recently been trying to escape the swarm periodically by unplugging and checking out. Mainly on weekends, I shoot for at least a few hours where technology and the rat-race get put on the back burner and I can commune with my family.
I haven’t mentioned this before, but our son has some medical issues related to him having been a ‘micro-preemie’ when he was born. Because of this spending time to help him learn and grow is a perfect escape from the swarm of daily life.
