Feelin Phoney

This latest Dustinland comic is about phones and how we use them a lot. Certainly not a new topic, but I did have some recent experiences that shed new light on the situation, at least for me. I won’t dwell on it here because really, nothing new, we are all aware that we use our phones too much. But yeah, really — no one cares what you share.

The 6 Stage of Dead Phone Battery Grief

As I say in this week’s Dustinland comic, when your phone dies and you’re not in the position to recharge it, at first you panic. But eventually you accept it, and at that point you are finally alive again. No email or texts to harass you. No Instagram or other time wasting social platforms or apps to distract you. Just life. Slow and beautiful. The moment. Be in it. Enjoy it. One day we will surely all be interconnected cyborgs, or living in a post apocalyptic wasteland. Either way, enjoy your rare moments of life without a phone. You may become more fleeting than you could imagine.
