worlds collide

Sitting in Culvers eating cheese curds looking @ a satellite pic of main street on my Ipod… surreal. I mean think about it forty years ago the very idea of people having a computer in their homes was laughed at now I carry one around in a pack on my back. Gulp, I can still remember black and white TV. I have to say though I don’t envy kids growing up with life at warp speed. I savor the memories of having to get up and walk over to the telly to change a station. We had time to change our minds about the activity while we were up.

We had the best of both worlds those of us brought up in the sixties, and seventies. Living on the cusp of change, we know enough of what use to be to fully appreciate what is!

Whereas kids today can’t wait one hour for a home cooked meal. Let alone change a channel with out a remote. I can almost picture people stopped in their tracks if all the sudden computers, pods, laptops microwave and cell phones simply stopped working simultanously. The blank faces, inexcapable confusion and unbelievable scramble for someone to… fix it!
