Byte by byte I’ve been reducing the noise level in my life – I call it my “enlightenment phase”, i.e. lightening the load.

It had gotten to the point where the “noise” was threatening to drown out everything else. By “noise” I mean all those notifications and emails coming from robots. So and so has updated their blog – email; thingmajig (no idea how you spell that) has clicked this or that – another email. A second here, a minute there and soon an hour is gone.

So for the past month I’ve been un-clicking various little tick boxes all over the internet – goodbye cruel noise. Leaves a lot more time for writing.
