I lost my iPod, my buddy who helps me get through the boredom of the treadmill and the train.
My iPod has my favorite tunes -- organized by every decade I've lived through and sub-categorized in various ways that, in my warped way of thinking, would only make sense to me.
But perhaps my iPod's been the audio equivalent to rose-colored glasses. Perhaps I've been using it to filter my 24/7. Maybe I've missed observations, opportunities, friends...by being plugged in.
Lent seems like the appropriate time to go without my personal soundtrack for life -- at least for the time being. For more thoughts on this, please read my latest "Waking Up" column on UPI.
Do you have an iPod or other MP3 player? What do you like to use it for?
