Out of time

I don't know why but one of the first things I did just before I took off for vacation was to take off my watch and put it away.

That was a very liberating experience. A little odd at first - I kept looking at my wrist to check the time, even if I had no real reason to know the time. I started to see just how much of a habit it had become.

A habit I started to unlearn. Pretty soon I had no idea what time it was and I didn't really care. Sometimes I needed to know the time, but it wasn't that often.

I believe it made the vacation that much more enjoyable. So the next time you head out on holidays, leave your watch at home.

But bring the sunscreen. Your wrist is gonna need it.

When we went to Hawaii on vacation in 2006 I took my watch off on day 2 and haven't missed it.
