"For Erykah Badu, phones aren't just emoji factories or Candy Crush receptacles—they're mystic devices that can span time and space, heaven and Earth. According to Badu, phones can enhance our ability to communicate deep desires across oceans, but they can also jumble our meaning with static or frustrate with busy signals and voicemail. As an extension of ourselves, phones can be heartbreaking, lustful, smart, dumb, noisy, distracting, powerful."

I am craving a return to simplicity and to stillness. Maybe not even stillness, but a quietness. It's that time again where the less I talk, the better I feel. There is so much noise out there: so many images, opinions, feelings, complications to confront. Pain that society says you need to ~process~. But I don't know about that. Sometimes I think you just need to be quiet for a while and stop trying to look inside, stop trying to verbalise it, analyse everything to death. The answers come when they're ready, you know. They always do.
