a life without cable

Updated on July 13, 2014

is not tied to something artificial,

contrived, fed to you through a

hyped-up tube, turning you into an

addict who thinks you need it to survive;

is not going to implode if you don’t

know the latest-greatest craze,

news story, scandal, song, actor,

video clip, animal rescue campaign;

is not opposed to being completely silent

sometimes, open and unscheduled, with the

door left open for stepping out, for the spontaneous

breeze and occasional neighbor -- human or non;

is not afraid to cut the bullshit, to free fall, to create

its own story, its own spiraling characters, settings,

timelines, events – deep down into the heart of the

invisible matter that needs no conduit but belief.

      If it weren't for my hubby, I would not have cable in the home. Good thoughts on this addicting habbit.
