So here I am, reading Wordsworth, It’s In Your Pocket. Wordsworth is in deep grief because his friends are all addicted to their electronic devices. How can he get them back into the real world of friends? An old mouse tells him the answer is in his pocket.

During the reading, I heard a woman say the battery to her phone had died.

A man in the audience later said, “I felt I was transferred to a new dimension…it was so surreal. While you were reading, many were so busy with their electronic devices, they weren’t hearing your story at all. Amazing!”

Yes, Wordsworth has his job cut out for him.
