connect/ click! disconnect, 21st November 2013

it's completely weird....... how the whole thing of the internet, networking, electronic and digital communication, the 'switched on' cultural shift.... although I would argue some of the people I see 'switched on' and connected are far from it, being they pay no attention to their surroundings...... connect/ click! disconnect........ just sitting back here at my keyboard thinking how much of my time now is spent tapping away on something not that long ago was non-existent or a rarity....... and now there are many who know nothing else and wonder what I'm harping on about...... changes happen all the time, in everyone's life, and usually we just fall into them, as we have with the digital world that now pervades the non-digital, or analogue (?) world..... it's becoming, or become almost seamless........ even after yoga last night there were some who straight after put their shoes on and checked their phones.... it's different for everyone...... over-reliance on any one thing can be risky......... after all, how do you get when there a power cut (outage)?..... and you can't even charge your phone...... isn't breathing brilliant!.... when you sit and truly listen to it and feel every caress as air flows in... and then out again.... seamless...... seems so simple but it isn't..... interestingly, it is when it's when you hold it that you become keenly aware of it...... all those molecules, so tiny, so seemingly insignificant, but not......
