Stepping Down From The Modern World [Sep. 15th, 2013|09:23 am]
Tony Grist
We got rid of our TV. We advertised it on Freecycle and it was gone the same evening. A pleasant young couple from a few streets away walked over and took it. The young man carried it off in his arms.

Will we replace it? Maybe, but not yet.

And why did we do it?  Because silence is golden. Because we'd both rather read books. Because living at my mother's I'm sick of having the hairy bikers roaring at me from the corner of the room, because the BBC pays its managers way too much...

I also have never owned a television. My husband owns a television and I occasionally go into his "man cave" to watch baseball games or interesting history/nature programs. I won't allow it in any of our other living spaces, so he gets his very own room for it. And knows to shut the door if he's watching anything that has screams or violence in it.

Once you allow a TV into your living space it becomes hard to use it sparingly. I grew up in a family culture where the TV went on early evening and stayed on until bedtime.
