“I start every Lent filled with good intentions and generally end with an almost fatalistic sense of my own incorrigibility, with little more thought about the whole business than that I will soon be able to resume whatever pleasure—usually coffee, alcohol, or music—I’ve given up. It strikes me this year that the most pressing thing I have to do is to reduce the level of distraction and stimulation in my life….And it’s going to require spending significantly less time on the Internet, my usage of which has really gotten out of hand since I got DSL and wireless network at home, and which I sometimes feel is inducing in me a case of attention deficit disorder.”
Could have been written by me.I wonder how many others see themselves in this post. Thanks for your honesty. I have high hopes for this lent.
