    The April 24, 1994 issue of the "New York Times" carried an essay on the erosion of genuine leisure in our culture as a result of our high tech communication culture.All those odd "spaces" in between focused activities which we used to call idle time, relaxation, daydreaming, or just "goofing off" are now invaded by faxes, telephones, and e-mail. With the increasing popularity of cellular or portable phones, still more islands of solitude have been invaded. The phone comes with us out into the garden, onto the porch, into the bathroom, and along in our cars. The "Times" reported that cellular phones are now available for rent on the ski trails at Vail! Technologically we can stay "plugged in" twenty-four hours a day, three hundred and sixty-five days a year. Either our work or our obsession about being reachable can encroach on every moment of solitude or leisure. There is virtually no activity that cannot be interrupted by a summons from outside of us via some communications device.
    Such a situation is, I believe, a consequence of our peculiarly North American addiction to busyness. Further, I propose that busyness is a state of mind and a habit of the heart rather than merely a result of the number of tasks to be accomplished in any specific unit of time. Finally, I am convinced that this love of busyness is profoundly destructive to self-intimacy, intimacy with the Divine, interrelationships, reflective thought, the social fabric of our society, our care for the planet, and our own psychological and physical health.
