On the day, I had a work to write some with the computer but I really didn’t feel like doing it. I was so fed up with using the computer. Even my eyes were hurting from watching the screen for long periods of time. I thought I needed to escape from these electronics, my computer and smartphone, then I left them on the desk on purpose and went out, not knowing where I would go. First, I thought I could go to Kyoto or Nara but, it was Sunday so it must have been crowded everywhere. I love Kyoto but I don't like such busy time. I couldn’t remember any quiet places to escape to except for the library, anyway.
When I walked in, there were some people in the room. I felt something different when I saw them. I got it at once. Nobody was peeking at the gadgets like smart phones or tablets. They all were reading the books. It was normal atmosphere. It seemed that I had forgotten people can read without technology.
After a while, I felt hungry and looked at the clock on the wall. It had been three hours since I started reading a book. I said to myself, “I really feel good.” If I had used a computer for three hours, I would have been exhausted and had a headache.
I learned how comfortable letting technology go once a while can be. Let it go. Let it go.
ふつうのオバサンです。よろしくね。 英語で何かするのが好き。読む書く話す聞く見る。人の考えを聞くのが好き。Talking with people all over the world is fun and you can learn something new from them, telling what you know to them as well. That's the reason I can't stop learning English.
