what we gain. (and lose.)

internet-less, i realise how reliant i am.

 for news. shopping. entertainment. blogging.

a privilege taken for granted.

(if you were pondering my absence, it was installed yesterday.)


my generation is the last to remember life 'before internet'.

as a child, it was something to look forward to. a treat only available when mum took us to the library or community centre.

when did it stopped being special?

(that, i can't remember.)

in its ubiquity, 

we need to remember what we gain. (and lose.)

Digital witnesses
What's the point of even sleeping
If I can't show it if you can't see me
What's the point of doing anything?

Lyrics by Annie Clarke (St. Vincent)
