  1. Love this. Yes, I’m sure we can all live without our smartphones.
    A day doing the ordinary seems endless and beautiful. Including doing the dishes by hand ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thank you for posting.

    • Yes.

      โ€œI remember one morning getting up at dawn. There was such a sense of possibility. You know, that feeling. And Iโ€ฆ I remember thinking to myself: So this is the beginning of happiness, this is where it starts. And of course there will always be moreโ€ฆ never occurred to me it wasnโ€™t the beginning. It was happiness. It was the moment, right then.โ€

  4. So this is about smartphones? Is that why you made it unavailable in this country, David? Because I’m always bugging you about too many gadgets? *grin* (Can’t view the clip. Sorry.)

  6. I’ve had worse. As a child I was mugged a by chicken for my hamburger, the summer we spent on a dairy farm in New Hampshire. Now that I think of it…it was once of the best times ever.
    Got even with that chicken.

  7. If I hadn’t read the comments, David, I wouldn’t have realised you’d put a ‘link’ at the bottom of your post. My thanks to Annelie; I shared her pie! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Beautiful message in the video… I love my smartphone… I also love being without it, at times. In fact, David; it’s generally in a bag in a bedroom where I can’t hear it. People now send me ‘messages’… Arrrrr… much better that way.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. My dinosaur of a computer isn’t compatible with the Jane Video, drat! It is so temperamental to turn on (a grueling process) some would have kicked it to the curb by now… and I said to the hubby at least it isn’t the old Aol phone line connection to the Millennium Edition software to the old Dell desktop…we even have an old Compaq Laptop that works…it weighs at least 8lbs (so I don’t use it) and I guess that Jane must have stayed home and enjoyed the passing of time, life’s simple pleasures?
