Wee Scoops

Measure for Measure

Incommunicado

I am just back from the middle of nowhere: A9 to Kingussie, through Kincraig and Feshiebridge, hang a right, four kilometres of single track to the Glen Feshie Hostel and accompanying communication blackout.

iphone: “No Service” *panic*

So, instead of obsessive email and facebook checking or post-a-daying, I spent a day at a different pace: Whole conversations, a long, leisurely dinner at a long table, mountain air and a night of visible stars.

I wasn’t there long enough to lose the unease of being incommunicado.  Waving my phone near the windows, hoping for a bar of coverage. However, I got a glimpse of life without the internet.

I could cope.

As long as there was great company. And a cheeseboard.

  1. I like the mountain air and night of visible stars part; sounds beautiful!
    But I do wonder how our noble ancestors entertained each other without ELECTRONICS!:D

    We are incommunicado here as BT has a fault on our line. Last week we had no internet for a couple of days and we have had no land line since Friday. Bliss for you Sandra – no telephone that is.. It is great to be without the internet from time to time but when we get back from hboliday one of the first things we do is to check our emails!!
