3 Steps to Feelin’ Groovy

This was inspired by a recent Radio 2 interview with none other than Art Garfunkel. In this rare interview, amazingly, even in this day and age, Garfunkel mentioned that he has never owned a mobile phone or computer. As such, he said he feels “untethered”.

He also talked of how much he enjoys walking. So much so, that he’s already walked round every State of America. Plus, he’s currently walking round Europe I believe.

I’m not suggesting we should all be like him and not own phones or computers. I love my i-Phone and besides, where would we be without computers? However, I am keen to promote a return to basics: Fresh Air is The Don at helping us feel good, and a balance has to be healthy. So let’s remember that the next time we are craning our necks or squinting our eyes at a screen, or feeling cabin feverish at our work desks.

And here’s to you, Mr Garfunkel… A reminder to us all to turn off our phones and machines, tread out and kick down some cobble stones, and breathe in the goodness of fresh air: 3 steps to feelin’ groovy.

  1. Reblogged this on chaotiqual.

  2. I’m ready to follow this advice, I’d just like some assurance that my hair won’t start looking like Mr. Garfunkel’s… : P

    1. Maybe all that being outside is the reason why his hair is so “aerated” so I can’t promise your hair won’t go wonky! I heard Garfunkel always wanted perms but couldn’t use chemicals as that was against his values and was afraid of what Paul Simon might think of him in curlers. :)

  3. OK so I tried to turn off my computer but I CAN’T DO IT!!!! Oh wretched man that I am!!!

    1. The digital force is strong!

  4. So what is this OUTSIDE that you speak of??? Is there a website I can do it on for a virtual walk so I don’t have to leave the internet???

    1. This reminds me, I must do something on The Muse Addiction. ;)

  5. Love this! Sometimes the best inspiration comes when I’m not at the computer but outside and observing people.

    1. Cheers, Rusty. Your Christmas cards should be turning up next week. Looking fwd to receiving them.

      1. Oh, Mr Oh, have you received the postcards yet?

        I hope so cause we are still waiting for the Christmas magnets to arrive in Singapore. :(

        1. Hi Rusty, I was just thinking about these yesterday. They haven’t arrived yet but no doubt they’ll turn up soon. I figured it was a Christmas post issue. No worries. :)

          1. Hi Mr Oh, the magnets just arrived today!

            So I reckon the postcards should reach you soon!

  6. Horsefeathers Mr Oh, I’ve personally molded (yes mold) myself to this chair so that we have now become one biological entity (or at least symbiotic ecosystem!). I no longer have legs and feed entirely off likes! Bliss!
    (Could you send someone round with a bedpan?)

    1. Woah! Maybe that Timothy Leary association was a bit strong! That was funny!

  7. TL was our prophet. But I learned that the real reality and the reality we were meant to experience is in the non drug altered state of mind in this dimension. Sorry Mr. Leary, but my grandchildren are more real and valuable than your strawberry fields and marmalade skies.

    1. Thanks for sharing. You can’t get more wonderful than real children. I want to give mine as much fresh air as possible.

  8. I reckon, you are ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY correct. Walk, walk, walk. Breath in, breath out. This year, I succumb to purchasing my own PC. Is it a mistake, yes, when the virus attacked me. Headache city. Cell phone? Not yet, there is a pressure from family that it’s a must to have one. Arg. This is progress?

    1. Peer pressure I guess is one thing. Choosing to not have the common communication tool is another. Garfunkel is obviously determined to not feel attached in any way but at what expense? It’s a decision either way to follow. :)

  9. Reblogged this on Reed's Quote of the Day and commented:
    WORD!

    1. Hey, thanks for the reblog. Kind of you. I’m looking forward to tuning in to your inspiring blog on a regular basis. Just became a follower. I’m intrigued by “aspiring authors” and wish you lots of positive energy towards this goal.

      1. Hey and thanks back at ya Mr. Oh….I can use all the positive energy flowing my ways as I can get!

What do you reckon?
