No network connectivity! NO NETWORK CONNECTIVITY? I’m suddenly thrown back into the 19th century. I’ll just relax and listen to some music, while I work on some off-line projects; but, NO Pandora! SILENCE!
Don’t get me wrong, I love being high-tech by day and Amish by night; but I want to pick and choose… I want control. Trying to perform my 21st century role in a wired world just seems weird. It makes me ever more mindful of how dependent I’ve become on electricity, computing devices, the Internet and the community with which I am temporarily (I hope) disconnected.
Wait! A flash. My email just wiggled and life has been restored. Web pages are flying into my screen at the speed of light. All is well in River City.
