Gratitude Photo Day 19: Knowledge

knowledge-001All genuine knowledge originates in direct experience.
~Mao Zedong

I am grateful for a life rich in experiences, and the knowledge that results. Why, just this morning, I witnessed that very process. While I was blow-drying my hair after my swim, I had the experience of watching in the mirror as traffic flowed into and out of the toilet area of the women’s locker room. My newfound knowledge? Women don’t wash their hands after using the toilet. How will I apply this knowledge? I will now wipe down every piece of gym equipment BEFORE I use it, not just after. Ick, ick, ick.

How much of the day are you plugged in? Do you consciously set aside offline time, or does it happen whenever it happens?

I’m plugged in about five and a half hours on an average day, including my work-from-home tutoring job, blogging, catching up with friends, and generally goofing off. Some days I may not even log 30 minutes online, but others I’m in front of some kind of screen from the time my eyes open in the morning until I crawl in bed at night. Except for tutoring, I don’t schedule my online time. Instead I let the demands of the day (and my mood) dictate how long I spend in the virtual world.
