Step back in time

"This feeling has become a rarity, and rarer every day now that we have reached a hastier and more superficial rhythm, now that we believe we are in touch with a greater amount of people, more people, more countries. This is the illusion which might cheat us of being in touch deeply with the one breathing next to us. The dangerous time when mechanical voices, radios, telephones, take the place of human intimacies, and the concept of being in touch with millions brings a greater and greater poverty in intimacy and human vision." ~ Anais Nin  

The above was written in 1946. Lately, I have been spending less time with gadgets and gadget-people and more time with life and meaningful people and things that bring quality, not quantity, into my life.

And yes, you have seen this photo, last August 2011 - in color, created way before the cell phone and computer companies plotted, while we slept, to take over our lives. What a good time to dust it off and give it a new look. And meaning.

This is splendid, Patty....absolutely splendid. bring back the times when we spend quality time with one another. We need to turn back the clock ourselves. We can do it...just as you putting away the gadgets and spending time with people. A novel idea! :)))
