“Scenery? People? Food? Why do you love this city?”…
An essay contest kicked off by a Vancouver realtor asks for answers in 1000 words or less, from Vancouverites “because he believes that too many of us spend too much time expressing ourselves in a 140-character universe, and that we can learn something from the age-old power of the reflective word.”
“He’s also mindful of the growing reputation that Vancouver is becoming known as a less-than-friendly place, a pretty but vacant girlfriend who seems less interested in getting to know you than she is in keeping herself amused somewhere off in the corner.
For one thing, no one, it seems, talks to anyone any more. If we aren’t hunched over our phones on transit or at the supermarket, we’re hooked up to video games and Netflix at home, trapped in our self-imposed isolation.”
Cheers to what say ye?!!!!…..
I can certainly think of at least 140 characters in our city! Might you be one of them?!…
In the stormy current of life characters are weights or floats which at one time make us glide along the bottom, and at another maintain us on the surface.
Character is what you think in the dark.
Dwight L. Moody
Everyone, as to character, is the creature of the age in which he lives. Very few are able to raise themselves above the ideas of their times.
“Facebook in longest outage in 4 years–21 minutes”…”Loopholes in spy laws exploited”…”Spanish soccer angst: at the end of an era”…
Three headlines of the day that seem to shout heaven forbid!…
Be it World Cup soccer, internatonal surveillance schemes or stuff sacrosanct about social media, how do we characterize it all as signs of our times??
Where are we headed?
Are we too impatient to smell the roses? Is efficiency overrated? How would you describe your “daily grind”?
Are we self-promoters of our own well being?
Just some Q & A thoughts for today!
Cheers to a day full of multiples that sings—choice!
