I've gone technical in a big way. I love gadgets. Three years ago I didn't even have a cell phone. Now I have a smart phone. I use it to coordinate schedules, listen to audiobooks, read ebooks, play games, entertain my kids, and make grocery and to do lists. The number of lists I can have soothes my list loving soul. I use it for pretty much anything other than making phone calls.
I've noticed, when I'm stressed I still turn to pen and paper. There's something so comforting about carying around an assortment of scraps covered with a dozen or two lists. About five years ago I forced myself to write on the computer until it became familar. Now I do most of my writing there. But I still carry around a notebook and pen everywhere, even in the house. Just in case I want them. I have a specific notebook I use. No matter how cute, I won't buy anything else. I also have a specific pen. You know I have problems when I throw away perfectly good free pens just because they aren't "my" pen. And deep down in my soul I long for the day I can buy a fountain pen, even though I know they're expensive and impractical.
I look at tablets and laptops and pretty new monitors with longing, but it's not quite the same. I guess for now pen and paper are still my comfort food.
Do you have a comfort food?
