On the Altar of Technology

I'm so unabashedly thankful that smartphones are thing, because without them I would most certainly miss out on so many impossible-to-overstate-the-importance-of life happenings that seem small but are actually pretty damn significant, like goofy conversations with my twelve-year-old nephew who lives 1,729 miles away and who I have not seen in far too many months and who is growing up so much faster than should be legally allowed by the laws of nature and the state of Texas and who has somehow, right under my nose, become a complex almost-teenager with so much energy and personality and verve and who is adorable and creative and funny and nerdy and smart and oh-so-damn happy. And also a vampire, apparently.
