Are you too connected to the Internet?
Do you find yourself checking your news feed on Facebook several times a day?
Do you compulsively reach for your smartphone to see if you have any unread texts, Tweets, or emails waiting?
If so, the folks at the Reconnect Project would like you to cut the cord and stifle the signal on Sunday in order to break away from what they criticize as a web full of recycled content and instead "reconnect" with the world around you.
While you're cut off from the online realm, the Reconnect folks invite you to make something original. Write a story. Take some photographs. Draw a picture. Build a bird feeder.
"It's not a festival. There's no prize, no brand tie-in, just you and your creativity," proclaims a video released by one of the project's organizers.
Those who participate are then invited to get back online on Monday, Labor Day, and share their creations with the world.
If you do use your "reconnection" day to create something, we hope you'll share it with Patch when the one-day moratorium ends! Click the "Pics & Clips" gallery (front and center at the top of this page) to post a photo of what you did while you were "Reconnecting."
