watch your step out back

1 Comment

Its good to watch where you are going. I see so many with their faces in the smartphone screens. Yeah, there is beauty and interest in those little boxes. But lots of times there is more right in front of you. Like the person walking in the opposite direction. Maybe that first step after you open the door and forget you don’t have a deck or porch. Maybe its nature in the form of a rare bird or beautiful sunset.

I read something the other day about time-wasters. And that phone of mine has become one of them. And I’m miles away from what I see becoming the norm for most. Yet when I think about it that thing is in my hand too much of the time. And why to keep up with work email when I’m off? I’m a news addict so that is another vice I got to work on reducing. So a conscious effort will be made to get those minutes of the day back and use them more constructively.

Technology has brought about an interesting dilemma. People interacting with people but at the same time not interacting physically with people. We better watch what that does to the quality of life. I’m not so sure it’s going to fall on the positive side.

Because it rained just about all day I thought I’d try to brighten the few minutes remaining in it.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
