Mercury Retrograde Incommunicado
Firstly welcome to Mercury Retrograde Incommunicado in the desert. When your device fails and you have no replacement. Details in Mercury-Retrograde-Incommunicado-Bob Davis Podcast 1085.
Planets Don’t Stop In Their Orbits
It just looks that way from our perspective on Earth.
It Got Me
But I admit this Mercury Retrograde got me.
My Device Went Kaput
At least that’s my story and I am sticking to it!
On the other hand I procrastinated getting a new device.
Physical Abuse Of Phone
And there’s the physical abuse of my device.
Incommunicado In The Desert
I think this might have contributed to being incommunicado in the desert.
Therefore getting me a new phone out here is not an easy.
When when everything goes my way.
New Phone New News Cycle
Of course once I got my new phone the first news I read was about my experience.
No More Than Five Hours Without Phone
In the same vein I came face to face with the modern condition of device withdraw.
Do Something Else
Certainly there are other things one can do, right?
Alone Time and Silence
For instance spending time in silence and alone.
Doing something creative.
Oh Wait! No Hot Spot!
Resorting To A Screen
And what about experiencing other human beings without being able to resort to a screen when it gets boring?
The Days Before Phones
Above all I have observations about my nomad lifestyle back in the day.
For example I found it difficult not to be checking for news and stock market updates regularly.
In addition I still have problems syncing old contacts and messaging.
To sum up I see why this is one of the top subjects for nomads around the fire.
Finally communications are important.
But I will have future observations about what this level of being connected does to all of us.
Meanwhile, I have YouTube to catch up on.
