Original Text

But these were not the major preoccupations of my day. It was just as critical for me to be the first person in at a cafe nearby with extension cords and chargers to juice my multiple devices. I started to prospect under the benches of bakeries and the entrances of pastry shops for plug points. I wasn't the only one.

Nature had just reminded us that it was stronger than all our technology, and yet here we were, obsessed about being wired.
