Being without an iPhone for the last three days has actually been a kind of open-door experience, spiritually-speaking. Not constantly checking texts and emails and doing HE edits let some air into my soul. I realized the night before last that I hadn’t felt this way in a long while. It sounds like a cliche but it’s true — in a left-field sense being without the phone created a kind of Buddhist-retreat feeling. Maybe that’s putting it too strongly but I definitely felt a bit calmer without it. Still the waters, smell the cappucino. Back to the salt mines: The new iPhone arrives today.
