am plugged back in.


Yesterday was my birthday (no need to apologize, I’m sure you meant to call) and I decided to shut off my phone for the day.

Despite some minor inconveniences – I couldn’t take photos; I didn’t know the hour-by-hour weather forecast; I had to navigate on my own while driving – it was kind of nice.

In fact, in some odd way, having less power and information at my fingertips made me feel more in control of my world.

I may try this every Sunday.
