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 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.
