December 6.20: Coping


FASTER! it goaded,

SPEED! it said;

I swallowed hard

and shook my head.

I don’t want fast,

I want some slow;

I want more stop

and not more go.

Network, server,


radio wave:

what is it?

Mega, macro,

ultra and such —

improve my life?

Not so much.

I can’t keep up,

my brain is boxed,

must watch some ducks

and get detoxed.

  1. Amen! Every single time I get comfortable with a piece of technology, they update it. Then I sit with my laptop using my phone as a search engine and a dictionary to figure out how to do something I’ve been doing. There is also a constant evolution of apps that I don’t know what they are for and the proliferation of social media sites, many of which I can’t even pronounce correctly. It makes my head hurt. I’d watch the ducks if they were here too. 🙂 For today, all I can see is snow. 🙂

    • I’m glad to hear from you! I’ve seen the reports about the “bomb cyclone,” and a really awful storm in your part of the country. Looks as though you and Laurie are getting pounded. I hope things aren’t too bad and especially that you don’t lose power! This is not what people need right now — life is complicated enough! And, yes, technology is one of those complications. My brain goes into meltdown whenever I try to figure out anything. Obviously I’m what needs to be updated! Thank goodness for the ducks!

  2. I’m with you on the technology, Maureen. It’s getting worse every week and I can’t keep up. I, too, would rather watch the ducks if I could.
