I am "TV free" now. I cancelled my TV subscription a month ago and it took effect today.
Interestingly, the "free TV" channels are still available on my satellite receiver so I still have TV shows to watch. The free TV is higher quality than the junk that I was watching before. I just finished watching a TV show on whales and am now watching a show on artist Alex Colville. The whale show made me wish that I was by the ocean right now, smelling the sea air and listening to the movement of the water.
It has been a long time since I have spent a long time without TV. I am excited about not having all those wasted hours hanging over my head. I have a bunch of books to read and some paintings to paint and some time to spend in the garden before the house is sold.
For lunch today I ate a large dish of strawberries that ripened in my garden. Divine.
