Freedom Rings. Answer the Call.
Someone took the words right out of my mouth today, and quite eloquently. So, please visit here .
I speak for the trees--which everyone, everyone, everyone needs.
Last week, we had to get up real early to cross the state for my daughter's gymnastics competition. At 3 o'clock in the morning, I thought I woke up to the sound of a very state-of-the-art alarm clock that spoke to me in a lovely woman's voice: "It's 3 o'clock, Cathy, please wake up." It repeated itself until I reached over and turned it off. Then I said to myself, 'wait, this isn't my clock' and went back to sleep.
When I really woke up 2 hours later I remembered the 'false awakening' and just had to laugh. Was that my bio-rhythms in vocal form? Did I wake up in my future when I will have a clock like that? Or, was my dreaming self just trying to get lucid?
There are, of course, no 'right' answers, but it does beg the questions.
Isn't that cute? It's a water-powered clock. Water can now power Time. I'm impressed.
Gadgets are cool, I guess, but I think I must've been Amish in another life. Not like I'm a Luddite, but I really would be okay without all of this technology. Let's all break back up into tribes, I say. I've always been this way. When I was a kid, there were only 3 material conveniences that put a twinkle in my eye:
refrigerators with ice and water in the door
rear windsheild wipers on automobiles
Done. Done. And done.
Anyone else remember what gadgetry they coveted as a kid? Yes, 007-inspired ones count, too. I mean, that is where I got the idea for that ejection seat in my car.
