There is simply not enough time in the day. Technology is the culprit for man’s insanity these days. Something that was supposed to simplify our life has sent us into a tailspin. At any given moment, one may Facebook a comment about a tweet while skyping with a friend all while watching reruns of lost on Netflix. I shouldn’t gripe, technology is fun. It allows up to connect in way we never have before. But I can’t help but think about how different my life was only 10 years ago. Our computer was a dinosaur and I distinctly recall watching the little Microsoft hourglass turn and turn to little avail. Rather than pull my hair out, I would usually give up and walk away and find something more constructive to do. We didn’t know what the hell the statuses of our high school friends were and we were OK with that. I went to a cook book to look up a recipe, not a website. We went to the store to buy our food, not Peapod. We have become so dependent on technology, we can no longer turn pages, we need a kindle. Back then, Amazon was just the name of a rainforest. Now we have no rainforest and have depleted our resources because of a place called Amazon. I think that Facebook founder, Mark Zukerburg may someday be compared to Alexander Graham Bell. Do you remember the rotary dial? Back in the days of the telephone, most worshiped God, now Steve Jobs is vying for the position. As I sat at a meeting with a friend the other day we contemplated whether she should purchase a 3g or wi-fi for her new ipad. The impending decision felt monumental, like like finding out the sex of your baby at the ultrasound. The good news is that your Ipad can be a boy or girl depending on whether you purchase a pink or blue skin. All of this makes me think that we need to have a National “Keep It Simple Stupid” Day. It would be a miracle if we could all unplug ourselves for twenty-four hours and see beyond the technology. I may be one of the worst victims of the computer age because the camera keeps me tethered to it almost always. But not to worry, Steve Jobs has provided us with an “Apple” a day. I think, I’ll go take a bite out of it right now.
