day 117 – quote

Over dinner tonight, I asked the kids, “What would be a good quote for my blog?”

“Life is to be lived, not controlled; and humanity is won by continuing to play in face of certain defeat.” – Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man

I agree.

They tell me I’m behind the times and I should be vlogging.

“Really? What’s that?”

“It’s video logging onto the web.  NO one has time to read anymore.” said in a tired and oh so ho-hum way.  Rolling of the eyes included.

“But, I just got the hang of uploading pictures!!”

And then just to show them, I tried to upload a 5 second movie I took.  But it exceeded the maximum something or other and I will be sticking to text and the occasional photo, thank you very much.

I like a real live book.  I like the smell of the pages. I like the heft of it.

I like to read my kindle in the dark.  I like to text.  I like to write daily on this website.

We live in both worlds.  We are on the cusp.

“We must not throw away what is useful about the past, and move forward with caution; for He who laughs about the old days, may rue the coming of the future.” – Cecilia
