A young man in the near future reflects on his grandfather’s passing and the way technology intersects with his daily life.

This is an interesting look into the rather mundane effects that remarkable technology can have; some of the tech is familiar now some 20 years after the story was published – the narrator’s smart watch is quite relatable – while other things are a bit fantastical, like the personal flight devices that the church choir uses. It’s a largely optimistic story, though, showing the positive and sometimes unintended benefits that technology can have on daily life.
