#163 - disconnected

Hi everyone! Apologies again for the delay. I've moved house and don't have any internet or phone yet. It is amazing how much I have come to rely on being 'connected!' In honour of the occasion, I'd like to hear your take on being disconnected.

I planned to link this to Sunday Scribblings for those who have known Otto through my link to the SS site and who would want to know that he had died. The prompt of "disconnected" fits my current state of disorientation and tears.

At first I couldn't think of a topic and then it came to me. My cousin left the UK for NZ in 1950 and we never saw or heard from him again. My aunt suffered dreadfully.

Old Grizz dedicates his blog "Burned Toast and Coffee" to Granny and Otto.
May God be with them.

Oh... I wrote about being disconnected from my computer, and the week that's had stuff happening, and now I see the news of Granny's great loss of her dear Otto, and am reminded again that nothing matters really except those we love. My heart goes out to her.

Returning home to Oregon and the need for windows and a furnace reminded me of how absolutely connected we are. Electricity runs my life.

this made me think of those times when a conversation "disconnects" and trying to figure out what's going on...

I see I'm not the first to talk about disconnect through too much connectivity.

I've relaunched my blog - Ceebie - it's been ages since I posted...Anyways I'm posting a day late, but better late than never!

My post was written last week and then I saw that it fits this week's theme. It's about losing connection with nature...understanding what that means...and then finding it again.

Understanding Alice - tried to leave you a comment and it would let me. Your poetry is beautiful and I loved the one about dyslexia. It hit home - I have a brother who struggles with it. Hugs to you!
