P hysiologically speaking, the hair that exists on the exterior of your scalp is dead. Which begs the question: why should we bother to look after it at all? There are a few answers to this, some obvious, some less so. First, and most obvious of all, is that while it may be dead, it's still attached to your skull and you carry it around everywhere with you. It's only naturally to want it to be clean and hygienic. Then there's the fact that hair may be deceased, but that doesn't mean it exists in a static state. It needs oxygen, protein and nourishment from hormones and blood supply — much like every other part of your body.

One of the gifts of the Camino is learning to listen to your body and knowing when you are hungry - to eat, when you are tired - to stop and rest, when your feet have pain - to stop and tend to them. We end up giving these devices a tremendous amount of power over us as we begin to trust them more than our own instincts. Remember that these tech products are designed intentionally to be addictive and to erode your confidence in yourself so that you will consume more of them. People often claim that using a Camino app is the same as using a guidebook.
Or, that writing in a diary by hand is the same as writing an online blog. On the surface they may appear similar but they are very different how they affect you mentally. In both cases, the guidebook and the handwritten diary, anchor you to the present and help keep you in a bracketed period away without external influences and feedback. The tendency when reading a stage on an app is to spend a significantly greater amount of time due to the many distracting elements which encourage you to seek further information about many different aspects of the journey — lodging, where to eat, comments someone made about this or that, what to do or not to do.
Before you know it, you have been sucked into a series of articles or posts and spent much more time than if you had simply had the fixed, sufficient info offered in the guidebook. In terms of a diary vs a blog, a diary is private, of the moment and may or may not be shared with anyone in the future — usually not. Writing a blog almost always implies an audience which can be very small family and a couple friends to a very large, unknown audience. The tendency when writing for an audience is to create a version of events for that audience.
Depending on how the blog is set-up, the pilgrim may or may not receive instant feedback. Habitual mobile tech usage has created new needs and new neediness in 21 st C pilgrims. People often sit in common rooms, where the band width of the WiFi is best, and connect to their devices and disconnect or tune out of the world around them.
Our devices now allow us to rupture constantly our sense of being away in a new place, space and time. The current trend is to constantly break up the day into mental engagement and disengagement rather than give oneself a long, extended period of mental disengagement over days and weeks. For some, this adds a layer of stress never before witnessed in pilgrimage as an experience!
Keep Your Head on a Swivel!
What did people do before Tech Time existed? What did you used to do? You hung out. You observed. You got bored. Since you were often feeling lots of different things on the Camino, you may even have felt more sexual and decided to go talk to someone you thought attractive. You looked up at the sky.
You sang, wrote letters, sent postcards, and learned some new phrases in another language. There was no way out of the moment. You lived and you learned. Now we insulate ourselves from experiencing what is around us in favor of what is out there in the CLOUD as if that were more important than what we have in the present. That is why it is called the "present. Extended Tech Time takes us away from the present that is the Camino as a whole and we lose the possibility of living it fully.
Try keeping your head out of the Cloud! A great part of the Camino pilgrimage experience is the Camino community and developing a feeling of belonging. On the Camino you will encounter many different tech mobile usage patterns among pilgrims that mirror what you will find in daily life. You may be eating at a table with other pilgrims who will multi-task your conversation by using their phone while chatting with you.
Or, you may encounter people who entertain themselves before going to bed with iPads, reading with bright lights and the pinging of notifications coming in. If you choose to go less tech connected than others, you may end up feeling more isolated from some of your companions. These can be opportunities for reflection, conversation, or compromise. It is now part of the 21 st C journey and reality. Reflect on how your actions, and those of others using their tech, potentially impact the community. There is no perfect Camino.
Whatever you do, is your Camino. Pilgrims often read and trust these recommendations on line rather than simply explore on their own. You let other people choose for you and, in the process, lose the diversity of the experience. Reflect on how and when you use your tech on the Camino. As people become more and more dependent on their mobile devices, when adversity arises, the trend is to more and more quickly turn to the mobile device for the solution rather than try to work it out for oneself.
What do I mean by the going getting tough on the Camino? Self-reliance is a wonderful skill to develop and sharpen in the safe space that is the Camino. People end up abusing expensive emergency services because they instantly panic and expect that someone else will resolve their problem for them. Recording, photographing and sharing becomes another layer of work and stress on the Camino. Remember, it is okay not to remember everything that happens or to share everything.

When we parcel out experiences through constant sharing as they happen, they potentially lose their deeper power in our total experience. Pre-internet most people did not have cameras on the Camino. If you did have a camera, the photos were never available until after you returned home.
Lyrics containing the term: keep ones head above water
Experiences became internalized, mulled over, reflected upon over the course of the whole journey, of the entire bracketed period away. Been there, done that. If you aren't in over your head, how do you know how tall you are? It is better to have your head in the clouds, and know where you are Henry David Thoreau.
Never let your head hang down. Never give up and sit down and grieve.
Find another way. And don't pray when it rains if you don't pray when the sun shines.
We need you!
