It's getting cold(er)

The end of the year is coming closer, and it's getting cold(er) here in the South of Spain. (My friends from Massachusetts laugh when they hear me say it's cold; they have to shovel the snow from their yard.) Summer clothes in. Winter clothes out. Here, in Málaga, it's sunny outside. You can walk on a sweatshirt.

We went away with friends to the countryside of Córdoba to disconnect over the weekend; walks, barbecue, and fireplace. I often wonder how we'd disconnect from work if there were no weekends, and constantly remind myself of a passage from Cal Newport's Digital Minimalism, which says the key to thriving in our high-tech world is to spend much less time using technology. Even though I try, I haven't found the right way to do it.
