I’m thinking about how our daily lives compare to those of our ancestors, hundreds of years ago.
At night, they would quietly walk around their home, so as not to disturb those who were sleeping, while holding a candle or lamp to illuminate their way.
Last night, I stayed up later than the rest of the family. So that I wouldn’t wake anyone up, I quietly walked upstairs without turning on the lights. To illuminate my way, I held…an iPod touch with the Flashlight application on.
