The void

My computing slab is in a cave. (Naturally, so am I. I wouldn’t send it in alone, would I?) No Wifi, no 3G. Then, when we come out into civilization (i.e. connectivity) after a few hours, the slab goes Bing! Bing! Bing! as it catches up to reality after being in the knowledge-less void, its notification bar lighting up like a Christmas Tree. “Look at all the things you missed!”, it screams at me, petulant from the lack of attention.

I can’t help but think of it as a whale coming up for air, or a bear coming out of hibernation.
