Dreaming in digital

Run into the sun

We take the screen for granted, assuming it reveals the real world. But the phone format only offers an exterior point of view.

Our screens fool us. All it takes is a few swipes at the Instagram Stories palette to give ourselves wings. Digital life is an activity of the most unfettered imagination.  

Augmented reality is still nascent — there is still no good way to combine the digital and physical worlds. In the meantime, we toggle between reality and irreality to arouse the nearest attention.

Rarely bored but always on — we project ourselves into the future, trying to bring new content into the immediate evidence of the senses.

If you're an WRITER or aspiring blogger, I highly recommend doing these 3 things:

1. Create your own blog and publish something new every day (read my post on how to set up a FREE blog on Wordpress).
2. Read more. Try Audible free and experience the world's largest library of audiobooks.
3. Buy an All-Access Pass from Masterclass to learn from the best writers in the world.
