It is amazing how the brain can quickly become wired to comprehend something that seems so alien.

So in the spirit of making your brain work, I have designed a little  teaser. Can you read this secret message?

Digital Detox.

Much of my life is spent dealing with digital technology so every now and again I need a complete digital detox to recharge my creative juices.  no phone, no email, no blogging, no Facebook, no Pinterest,  no Google, no voice mail, no Photoshop, no key word analysis, no coding, no CSS, no debugging, no pulling my hair out because of Internet Explorer.

The answer…a holiday. Getting away from Chicago and heading to the coast. Give me a good book, a warm ocean, sandy toes, sea breezes, hunting for shells,  underwater handstand lessons from my teenager, key lime pie, no access to a computer and a phone that is turned off …AAAAAAAAH bliss. I find it completely liberating.

Of course coming back to work is hard even though I love my job. But I have web sites to create, brochures to design and SEO strategies to execute.

So I will have to make do with a few “digital memories” today.
