We eat words, we consume them, very often we disregard how they taste. Words and random thoughts can create a mental obesity. We are constantly bombarded by an excess of superfluous information for the brain. Sure they may be sweet and creamy, salty, heavy, warm, and enjoyable. Fast food for the brain. What happened to slowly cooking and eating a meal, starting with a single pristine ingredient and slowly building the rest around it? How can we streamline the diet for our brains? Limit the internet. A day without computers. A mental vacation that feels impossible to take. What can we do with a day without that constant stream of information, that mental crutch? I believe it is important to write longhand occasionally. Forget email, forget twitter. Why do we use these things? I am not quite sure. I do not even know if I would be able to stick to my own plan. Simply imagine it, a day of conversations and books, a day without static and unnecessary distractions. Maybe that will be a day that I renew my acquaintance with myself.
