Every time I see a telescope on the front, I am vividly reminded how excited I used to be about any form of telescope. It was just primal, to see into the distance, the far far away, using lenses and refraction and science.
Now, in th palm of my my hand I hold the whole world, every landscape, image, map and viewpoint. It is truly astonishing, and I look at young children staring fascinated at their parents smart phones and, like me, they see a unique window into the world. And then they go on Tik Tok......ah well!
