Watching Time go by...



This is the new watch I picked up yesterday while grocery shopping at my local WalMart. I guess I'm just an anti-technology kinda person. For the last 15 years of my life I have not worn a watch or owned a cell phone. I picked up this watch so I would have something to use to log my times as I run now.

I still dont have a cell phone. I do see the benefits, most have camera's now so you can click a picture of a beautiful woman walking by or that car accident you come up upon. They have MP3 players so you can have a library of music at your disposal and can get that Elvis fix when you need it. Plus there is the phone factor, being able to reach out to a loved one 24/7 from almost anywhere you can receive a few bars. Then there is the internet, I could be posting cool things just as they happen to me on this blog.

I can almost see it now as I'm stuck in the twisted metal of my car on I-4, listening to The King sing "Dont be Cruel", clickin pictures of the guys using the jaws of life to free me, thinking, should I post these to the blog, seeing as it might be my last post ever or do I call the wife and tell her I love her. Personally, I would prefer to lay there in quiet knowing she knows I love her.

luddites. that's what folks like us are called. apparently, we had revolutions in the early 19th century protesting the encroachment of technology.or at least mechanical production of cloth....

the micmac indians had no word for time. the compartmentalization of time into measureable units (hours, minutes)has been our downfall. time was meant to ebb and flow naturally around the sun and the moon and the seasons.

i think i feel a blog post coming on.....
