Day 10, April 25: The Tiferet in Gevurah

I enjoy having a smart phone, but sometimes I think it is incredibly enslaving! I'm talking about "the tyranny of over-connectedness" and the constant interruption and distraction that our availability to others – via text, email, Facebook and so forth – has created.
