The Need for Speed

Been seeing this commercial a lot lately. Clever, clever, phone company.

Anyone notice the almost manic pressure the world feels to speed things up? A 3G network?? Are you living in the DARK AGES??? That page took an entire SECOND to download? Your phone is CRAP. Seriously?

Like Louis C.K. says about the iPhone's internet capabilities, "Give it a second! It's going to SPACE. Can you give it a second?"

In a world where we have essentially all recorded data/information/people/things at our fingertips, we seem to have forgotten the part where it's fun to explore and discover and take the time to enjoy the journey.

I am promising all of you right now that I am going to relish the time. I am going to savor the long line at the grocery store. I am going to take in deep, beautiful lung-fuls of air while Madigan takes forever to find a suitable patch of grass on which to pee. I am going to slow. down. now.

love, elizabeth

I can relate, I only got a smart phone after my previous eco friendly phone broke down. & even then felt guilty, since there was no need for internet on the phone. We have 2 laptops, & 1 desktop at home!! Now the question I get is, "Why don't you get an IPHONE?
My Android is just fine, thank you very much.
