I re-subscribed to the NY Sunday Times again. It’s been over three years since I last read it in paper form; everything has changed since my first iPhone. One of the reasons I want to experience a paper again is to combat “screen fatigue”— too much of my life is mitigated by the two digital rectangles of my smartphone and laptop.
I miss the smell of ink and physically rustling through oversized floppy pages to get the news. I miss discovering stories I wouldn’t normally read. I miss not stroking, poking and scrolling my media.
The paper arrived on my front doorstep this morning and so far I have posted a photo of it on Instagram, tweeted about it and written this blog post. Next up— reading the paper.
