Camino Afterthought #7

For 30 days, we did not read a newspaper or see the news. On the Camino, we survived without Google News, the Daily Press, and CNN. And we missed the whole Paris Hilton soap opera. This morning as the headlines included the President’s colonoscopy and the furor the NFL football player Vick and his alleged dog fighting, I wished I was back in Spain.

I do not intend to cancel my newspaper, cable, and Internet subscriptions. However, I am struck by how non-essential information clutters our lives. It may be diverting, even entertaining, but it can easily take up too much of our attention. We are glued to the news when we could be out walking.

If this spoke to you, here are five similar articles.
