The Light Phone

A friend of mine recently went to a secluded B&B. There were lush landscapes, plushy down-filled bedding, homegrown meals made with TLC and, most importantly, there was zero phone reception. “How was it?” I asked her when she got back. She gave the same answer a lot of us would give: peaceful and idyllic to be away from calls and emails and a million gloating status updates by which you’ll inadvertently measure your own achievements.
