Electronics have taken over everywhere and they were marketed to make lives easier and offer more off time. Obviously what they have done is add more to our plates and they have taken away all our free time. People pay with their phones, take pictures and videos and just about do everything with the new member of the human body. We drive around with the phone glued to our ear. We walk around hugging the otter cased device. Who called? Who texted? Who made a comment on Facebook?
I have refused to buy into the smart phone lifestyle. Because of this I have been forgotten by some people. I am not connected, not part of that group, so nobody has the time to "dial" my number and talk to me. Wait, why did you buy the phone? Twitter, Facebook,Strava, Watts, Zones, etc, etc, etc. Where is the limit??
I do not have a facebook account either. I miss out on a lot of good things I guess. I get excited to see a payphone. I love to listen to radio and read some real books made of paper. I love to look at real art work and thumb through pictures. I think we have been all too quick to abandon all these things for that dumb smart phone. I think it is time to slow down.
Just a thought,
|My trusty, analogue radio.|
|real life posters and art work.|
|Compact disc. They work with a player and you don't need I Tunes.|
|I have had this analogue clock for about 30 years.|
|We lost a vast book collection in our last move but we will rebuild.|
|More real books. My oakleys and Trek belt buckle.|
|Real film cameras. Yes, they still work and take amazing pictures.|
