After a long drive  through some breathtaking landscapes, Skye had welcomed us with some beautiful skies.

We stayed at Kyleakin, a beautiful village situated very close to the bridge.

I had been to Skye before and was familiar with some of the places but this was the first time I would be spending some days there.

The plan for this trip had been a   bit spontaneous and the next few days were  going to be really interesting.

The hike up to the Old Man of Storr was quite possibly the windiest one I’ve ever done.

The Time to Shut Down

In our lives immersed in technology, we rarely shut everything off.

We turn on when we wake up, and are on our devices until we go to sleep. And every hour in between.

I’m not immune to this. Very few people these days are.

And yet, there’s value in shutting everything down, so that we can reconnect with life.

With people.

With the moment.

With ourselves.

There’s a time to work hard, and there should be a time to shut down. Otherwise, it all blends together and nothing has any space.

What time will you shut down today?
