Modern electronics are fantastic. Handheld devices allow complete access to the internet, instant communication, and the ability to discuss any matter with anyone at any given time.
While electronics offer many things, they prevent others. To push my point, I offer the following observations:
I was driving down a city street and passed a young man so distracted with his phone, he was almost completely unaware of my truck as I passed.
A little further down the street, I passed a young woman that was walking, while talking on the phone.
Both had their heads down, almost oblivious of their surroundings and lost in an ethereal electronic world.
Meanwhile, an exceptionally beautiful sunset was in progress and neither seemed to be willing to raise their head and observe the wonderful event.
I think both are missing something, while entranced with their cellular phones, and will probably never realize how much they missed.
In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.
