O gremlins, O St. Anthony!

My faith is in science, but I try to keep an open mind.
By Meg Barnhouse
There is great rejoicing in the land today because my phone, which was lost, has now been found.

It could only have been in one of two places: the campsite or the car. I had been taking pictures coming down the mountain toward the campground, and then I’d hopped out of the car to claim the site while my beloved went to register us. I’d been reading Rumpole of the Bailey stories from an actual paper book while I waited for her. We set up camp and got back in the car to go on an adventure. I looked around for my phone, because more beauty was coming and I wanted to be ready.
