That’s the sand in your hourglass slipping away, vaporized as a result of your addiction to the latest and greatest high-speed pressurized pasteurized gizmo, game, and/or social media gadget.
The Black Holes of Cyber Space.
There’s an App for That!
The more focused we become on keeping up with the ridiculous fodder tossed around by others, the less time we have to live.
Too bad we cannot add minutes to our lifespan the way we can with our family plan.
The minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years we spend glued to screens in an ever-deepening hypnoptic trance can never be reclaimed.
Time, once sucked down a Techno Turnip Hole, is water over the dam, gone for good. Or bad.
When we stumble away from StumbleUpon, express disinterest in Pinterest, opt for Real Time Face Time (rather than patrolling Facebook), we reclaim the reins and can tune in to what really matters to us.
Can you hear me now?
Aah . . . that’s better!
