Not Connected

The WiFi has been out here since yesterday afternoon. Read a book, yes. Remember that we all got along without uninterrupted wireless internet before. Light candles and tell tales of the old days.

The internet is a powerful utility in our everyday lives, and when any utility goes down the disruption is real. We used to do without electricity, natural gas, and running water too, but we don’t romanticize their outages. You might freeze without one of those in the winter, I know, and yet I know lots of people who literally can’t do their jobs without internet access at home.

We’re dependent on the connection of WiFi. Don’t feel bad about it.
