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.
