Inktober 2016: 7. Lost: Under The Star’s Light

Navigating by starlight is a bit of an uncommon skill in modern times. Once, people needed only a few sighting tools and a fixed point in the sky to orient themselves. Now, it almost seems as though we are lost without a constellation of advanced satellites in the sky telling us where we are. Throughout the past decade and a half, we’ve gone from memorizing our friends’ home phone numbers to tagging them on Instagram; from knowing our streets and paths by heart to using turn-by-turn navigation to travel a mile. Are we more connected than ever before, with our never-ending conversations and wireless data networks? Or are we isolated points in the global sea, like stars in the night sky — so close, and yet so incredibly far?
