the truth is that it sucks you in and makes you believe that your life exists on a little screen with a qwerty keyboard attached. that you and your "friends" can be in touch all day long. that disputes with your mate can be dealt with via gmail or IM or status updates.
that you are powerful beyond belief because your followers and your subscribers and your readers and your "friends" agree with you and said so, too.
well, with their keystrokes anyways.
but when you unplug, you notice things. people, voices, hearts. auras, scents, love. it's good to unplug from time to time, to make sure that your friends -- the ones I am not putting in quotation marks -- still know who you are.
