Game of Drones

As someone who struggles to put the iPhone down I have come to a realization that there are times when it is necessary to unplug from the device….and the noise. We live in a world full of noise. From the constant ‘ping’ and updates on our iPhones to the noise of the 12 TV’s that […]
