I am traveling again, perhaps not as Spartanly as the previous trip. Yet, I did make the decision to leave my computer at home.
Gasp, you say?
Yes, it's true. This may be the worst decision of my life (just kidding) but I am leaving my beloved Mac home.
As I was thinking through my packing, I have this huge desire to be completely hands free. I have a layover in one city and a three hour wait before I can join up with friends I am meeting at my destination. Normally, I would want my computer to internectify … but I just don't want to have to carry the thing. It's not that its all that heavy – a mere 4.5 pounds if remember the specs correctly.
But there is a lot on my mind these days, and it feels like I am already carrying too much on the inside; hence the desire to carry little, if anything on the outside.
I have a 8" x 10" bag/purse/pouch/overtheshoulderthingy … it will hold a book, a journal, my phone, a pen, ear plugs, headphones and my ubiquitous Luna bars. Perhaps some gum. And three quarters. For no reason other than it just seems like a good thing to bring.
If I could, I would bring NOTHING.
But, alas, I am not that brave.
