"The secret to living well and longer is: eat half, walk double, laugh triple, and love without measure." ~Tibetan Proverb
You made a nice portrait. Nobody knows the future and I think that is alright, we better leave it to the time.
Or, implanted in our heads! Yikes what a thought. I'll go with your "in the pocket" description. Sounds better.
have no idea what's coming next! In 1985 I would never have believed we are where we are now. ;))
I think sometimes the zombie apocalypse has arrived in the guise of being glued to the smartphone...
How about pen and ink? It's fascinating when one read about peolpe just 100 years ago and the amount of letter-writing the did and the many contacts they kept.
I am just now catching up with your recent photos and posts. We were away in the Galapagos and Peru for the holidays. While in Urubamba, Peru, in the Sacred Valley leading up to Machu Picchu, we visited the gallery of ceramic artist Pablo Seminario. On the wall was a proclamation from about 8 or so years ago by then-Governor Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota thanking him for teaching a workshop at St. Paul Academy, which, if I recall correctly, is where you taught.
You are corrrect, Dave; I did teach at SPA, but I had retired before the artist visited the school if it was about 8 years ago. The art department there has always been tops! I'm almost positive that one of our Spanish teachers arranged the visit.
And I remember when my grandparents had a party line and we had a two-digit phone number. We actually cranked up the phone and the telephone operator who just happened to be my Aunt Dorothy said "Number, please?"
Nice, Kate. This is the kind of portrait I love best.I don't dispute that some technology is going to get smaller, with things like iPhone quality watches, but what this trend misses is that a key part of the population with discretionary money -- Baby Boomers -- is getting older with fading eyesight, so there will need to be a role for things like iPads and laptops with the ability to display large fonts.
i think we'll just eventually get an implant in our head.
Oh, ack...The mainstream communication trends are passing so quickly...Hard to get used to it if you weren't born into it...I have been hearing the news on the radio (what's radio?) about the new wrist watch that can keep track of everything...
I heard a talk in the early 70s, that era of mainframes and IBM Selectric typewriters, where the speaker predicted that the microchip would revolutionize everything we knew, including wristwatches. It started out slowly at first but the pace has steadily increased with each new wave of technology. I hate to think everything will be pocket-sized; I'll stick with a keyboard as long as I can. I'll never punch 90 wpm on a touch screen.
I'm not going to answer your question - but I love the portrait!
It really is a nice portrait.
A good portrait.I got a laugh out of Jacqueline's remark about zombies!
Thanks for visiting my blog; I appreciate it! Come back often!!
