“Theres no true free time when you carry a smartphone. Todays rarest commodity is the chance to be alone with your own thoughts.” Michael Harris
How might you embed lack in your day today? Digital lack that is. Not checking Facebook for a day? Or Twitter? Or go for a walk without your smartphone? Go on, you know you want to. And if you want a great book to find more absence in your life, Michael Harris has written ‘The End of Absence: Reclaiming What We’ve Lost in a World of Constant Connection’. A poetic reflection on reconnecting with not-having in a world that gives us everything now – digitally if not physically!
