time travelers

This morning's dance.

Life blushes with color. The day drunk with light while i sipped coffee trying to untie myself from a dark lace of dreams, and last night.
Couldn't help grinning at the paradox of things.

I tried to drown my sorrows, but the bastards learned how to swim, and now I am overwhelmed by this decent and good feeling.

Frida Kahlo

Am only on the precipice of what I need/want to accomplish.

Online a few times a week exchanging only necessary mail.
Its amazing. Internet like a second blood system to our individual (and collective) systems now; day by day. And how long have we been using it?  Not that long.

We all probably know some people (a dying breed) who didn't know a tv for long periods of life, and then only a few odd channels. Now ... the easy capacity to scramble into worlds away ... we are time travelers, we just don't yet call it that way.

I like the Frida Kahlo quote..

and i think we all time travel - all the time. In fact so rarely present in the moment, that would be the real adventure.

time travelers....through memory of soul and cells...internet and photographs held in hands...

I love this line: "trying to untie myself from a dark lace of dreams, and last night."

so beautiful.

"the bastards learned how to swim" :-)
I love this

Yes, it's weird how we all of a sudden "need" this massive form of communication. I find myself overloading sometimes. Due to my work, I can't take time "off", but it sounds so wonderful when you descibe your experiences with it. I should be bold and try it in a holiday next time one comes along.
You are an inspiration
Have a wonderful weekend :-)

Good to see you.
Thanks giving.

Stimulating stuff. Man has become machine. Forget robots being human.

Joining you on the precipice... Virtual and real are so much closer than I used to think.

Christine said...

Happy Thanksgiving :-)
(I think I'm late - we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here)Not that we're not thankful. I think. I'm thankful.(and rambling a little bit) Thank you :-)

It's snowing much. Is it snowing where you are? November came as a surprise to me this year. Hm. November is welcome. December too. Snow makes everything silent.

Yes we are. And we even lose some or many parts of us in the different universes while travelling...and sometimes it's so difficult to put yourself together.
