I recently got Netflix.

And it’s suddenly occurred to me that there is more entertainment on my laptop

Than I have time for actual living in the day.

And I could get hooked on a show

And stay there til it’s done

Until I find the next one.

Fortunately I have other things to do.

And it’s like I can go through my day

On the pilgrimage to entertainment,

Knowing that my mind enjoys a good story

My heart likes to be tugged

But there are other things to do.

It’s so much easier not to read

Not to find time for prayer

For people

For non-virtual life.

As we find greater ways to delve into our devices

It becomes even more important to schedule the things that matter,

Because there are certain things that your device

Just won’t be able to handle for you.
