Techno-Jugglers!

Posted on February 17, 2010
I wonder. We’re on the phone while we drive, on the computer while we’re on the phone, texting while we’re on the computer while we’re watching television. We’re Techno-Jugglers. Most agree that this is just the beginning.
“Multi-tasking” is a trendy word now. We’ve taken it to a new level. With everything at our fingertips, does the good outweigh the bad?  One study suggests we’re becoming dumber, not smarter. 
I find it hard to resist the temptation to reach into my pocket when I feel the hum of my muted phone during a movie, a dinner, a meeting—or anything. Can I be undistracted? Am I capable of having an undistracted conversation?  I can’t say that I’ve had one lately.  So, I wonder.  Is singular focus impossible?  (I might miss something!) There’s a bit of sadness in that thought.  What do you think?   

 

Brett Lessons~

Posted on January 25, 2010

I got my football "fix" yesterday, but I'm still trying to get over my disappointment for Brett Favre.  When a guy gets knocked down that many times & still manages to stay in the game, well... I think better things should have happened for him.  So it goes in the Game of Football, though.  Come to think of it, so it goes in the Game of Life.

Run!

Posted on January 18, 2010
We run.  Everything is so busy ALL THE TIME.  I'm starting to wonder if there is a slow button in Life.  I'm thinking, "No."  However, even as I say that & believe it, when I think back to Saturday night, I would answer, "Yes."
 
I was standing in my favorite corner at Rossi's & I was doing what I love to do.  I was playing music.  People wandered in.  I knew many of them & came to know many others.  Somehow, the rush of Life felt far away.  I was conscious of just those moments, of doing just that one thing. 
 
It's cold & snowy today, a good day for reflection.  More slow moments are what I hope the new decade will bring me.
 
Peace!

What's Happening?

Posted on January 15, 2010
What IS happening? 
So much is happening so quickly.  My mind spins thanks to the new "tweets & blogs" cyber mentality.  I think I'd better get used to it, though.  It IS what's happening.  You need to be LinkedIn, Facebooked, MySpaced & you'd better be Tweeting or you're just... well... out of it. 
I'm still trying to understand how HootSuite can save me.   Can it? 
Stay tuned!
Peace.
