There is no TV in the Manse here, and papers only arrive on boat days, thus I rely on radio and internet for news. Not seeing the moving pictures is quite restful. But if I lived on Colonsay all the time I guess I would be like the rest of the islanders and have a satellite dish fitted. Makes me wonder what all the media input is doing to our brains in this 21st century. I read somewhere that we receive more information in a day than our ancestors 500 years ago received in a lifetime. Now I know that we only use a small proportion of our brain cells…..but there has to be a lesson in that somewhere. Perhaps it is enough to recognise we need rest.
