I am at work right now, and out of the window, we caught a glimpse of a hawk on the fence just feet away. I immediately leapt for my iPhone ... but I was too slow to take a photo. There is something to take from this, I think, and it's something I tend to struggle with. It is so easy to want to capture everything with our phones that are practically extra appendages, to preserve the best parts of life. But then we miss things. Sometimes it's important to put down the phone, shut off the computer, and just let the experience stand on its own. No photo with this post, because I missed taking the photo of that dang bird... ;)

Is this something you struggle with? How do you reconcile the 'life vs technology of the 21st century' clash? Do you set rules and boundaries or does the fine line present itself easily to you?
