Beyond the Screens

Life without screens? That ship has sailed.

We can arguably have too much of a digital thing.

Great Outdoors

Want to spend hours hunched over these screens?

Reconciling productive, enjoyable work with the time to savour our leisure (and run our lives)… a fine challenge.

This page showcases blogs (Certain Age?) and events that encourage us (me too) to be more active in the great outdoors.

My own habits? Since taking up the piano a day with no practice feels odd. Long walks too: during her extended visit a family dog helped those get longer still – whatever the weather.
