Word of the Day: Telephone

Time changes.

Either we adapt or we fall behind.

Technology is constantly changing which requires learning the new stuff.

Today cell phones are everywhere – rings and dings for older folk a nightmare.

I sure wish I could turn back time and carry on a conversation without interruptions.

What happened to actual human interaction? Why is everyday life now complicated?

Questions. questions and more questions.

Gone are the days we could sit quietly with our princess phone or prepare our meals

while chatting with a friend thanks to an extra-long phone cord attached to our

wall phone.

Today we carry around our phones. They are onboard everywhere we choose to visit.

Unless we shut them off, there is little peace from them and all those unwanted

incoming texts, calls and voicemails not to mention the monthly bill.

Besides the annoyances described above is the actual panic when one can’t locate

their phone.

It’s near impossible if turned off and of course there’s the issue with battery drain.

I realize many folk from younger generations don’t share these views with regard

to telephones.

Would they change their minds? Doubtful.

One wish I can never has is to turn back time. I can remember though the days

when life was simple and we didn’t live in fear of answering our telephone(s).

Simply 6 Minutes: 7-13-2021

Prompt picture challenge – nature scene

Ah, today is going to be a good day (tell myself).

And so I scroll the reader for something positive to write about (challenge myself).

Alas several posts down, I find one I’ve participated in before (great).

But I’m unsure of the picture so take a ‘http’ trip and find a nature site (beautiful).

Collect as my clues as possible for a mini-story as six minutes passes quickly (undoubtedly).

Down another sip of mornin’ tea from my grey mug outlined cat words inscribed “Don’t

stress – Meow! (laughing out loud).

Eeks! I can’t go back and make corrections ‘block’ editor won’t allow. (sigh)

Quick attempt at a Tanka poem:

Vacation resort
Location unknown foreign
View extreme beauty
Photographic dream ne’er seen
Alarm rings wake up tis morn
