This past week I spent 4 days at my father's house in the boondocks of upstate New York. Going there always makes me think of a quote from the movie Sweet Home Alabama. "People need a passport to come down here." In made case it's "up here" since New York state is north of where I live in New England. It is small town full of cows, Amish, and people who have never owned anything other than a Ford truck. I usually go to my Dads when I need time away. It lets me clear my mind being so far away from my repetitive fast pace life.
Now karma has come to get me. Last week I spent it off the grid....by choice. Now I am off the grid thanks to a little storm named Irene. Because of her, I have had no power or cell phone reception for two days.....so much fun. Thankfully, I have lights, electricity, phone service and hot water at my work.
Here's to going off the grid.....not by choice. UGH
