Inspired by the rarely-dull-or-dumb Sara Zarr, I’m taking a break from online social networking (Twitter, FB, etc).  From tomorrow (the first Sunday of Advent) through January 6 (Epiphany).

(Despite being Jewish and therefore not celebrating Advent in any other way)

I’ll still be online, for emailing and a blog-post now and then, and maybe even the occasional Etsy holiday purchase.  And I’ll be reachable by phone or carrier pigeon (as usual).  I just won’t be on Twitter or FB.

Don’t worry.  This isn’t like last time. I’m not shaking and sweating in my bed. Nobody had to tie me up. I just have a lot to do, and I’ve been too busy lately. Not enough space inside my head for all the things I’m putting in there.  In fact, this isn’t just a web-hiatus. I’m  pulling back on my offline (which is to say, physical) social life too.

And hopefully, I’ll write this book and clean my house and come back a saner version of myself!

    I have half a mind [pauses for inevitable joke] to do that too.

    Sometimes you need to dramatically pare back life to expose what really matters. Good for you to have the courage to do this.

    You are wise to do this now. We all have to make choices. Cutting out some of the fun stuff is hard, but it really feels good to be sane.
