I'm not watching the Super Bowl this year. Not just because of Deflategate, although that's probably what pushed me over the edge. Mainly, I've realized it's a complete and utter waste of time. I have better things to do.

Our Illusion of Connectivity

Just like the teams that make families in catalogs look just a little too perfect. Just like Photoshop. It's all an illusion. I don't think we are better off. Not even close. It's lonelier. It's isolating. And without a major shift in the way our world works today, I have no idea how to change it.

For those hopeless romantics, including myself, here is a parting message: Stay strong and firm in your beliefs. Don't give yourself too much to into the digital footprint as you start dating. If you do, there is nothing else more to give or to leave as a surprise when you do meet the one.

I have come to believe that whether we like to cook or not, these same principles apply to just about anything else we undertake. It's about the awareness we experience, the devotion we apply, and as a result, how we create.

I love food, I love eating. I just enjoy eating what others have made more than I enjoy personally leaning against the counter, peeling potatoes or dreamily smiling as my sauce starts to simmer. I am bored. I believe I can taste the disinterest, I just don't care enough.

I started boxing last year simply because I couldn't get to my thai boxing gym consistently enough and I wanted to train up for my first fight. But when I started boxing, without the kicks, knees and clinch, it turns out I was pretty bad at just using my footwork and hands.

The regrets are many, the unease over them short-lived. I mean, if it wasn't, life would have been different, a tad at least, if the January 2014 introspection had been conducive in enacting a change in my life.

I don't want you to kiss me or hold my hand, or tell me that you love me. I don't want to date you or even have sex with you. I simply don't want you. I miss you, that's all. I miss how you used to make me feel.

These "teachable" moments that some might view as setbacks are also one way that life reminds us to slow down and take a deeper breath, to pace ourselves. Renewed, we stand up once again. Once again, we speak up about things that matter most in life to us.

I love my dog, but I will not dress him up. I will not buy him an elevated water bowl or a doggie sofa. The fact that I live in Marin County, Calif., land of certified dog massage therapy, cashmere canine wardrobes and fake service-dog vests, only strengthens my resolve to stay normal.
