“people have become so accustomed to texting
that they’re actually startled when the phone rings.
it’s like we all suddenly have bat phones.
if it rings, there must be danger.”

update on the talking heads –
seems they’ve become the walking heads.
and may have found me.
asking me to step up
to become their new organizer
as i am
one of the ‘top members’ of the group
though i never joined
only looked upon it in horror.
i may have to move.
Hi Beth Kennedy,
Ferris stepped down from organizing Learn and practice Ventriloquism and puppet skills.
You are one of the top members of this Meetup, so I think you have what it takes to be a great organizer. Stepping up would help ensure that this community continues to survive past Thu Sep 6.
You can step up as organizer here: _________________

oh, amy what have you done?
after a bit of an unexplained absence
and when rejoining us outside at her picnic
amy tells us that she was busy inside
setting her mother up with her old iPad
and is already feeling a bit of remorse and worry
that this choice may have created
a life-long need for her tech support
and round-the-clock calls to her
yearning for immediate answers
to the endless questions as to the subtleties and mysteries
contained within the world of apple products.
her brother quickly makes it clear
that he is hands-off
and is not in any way involved in this endeavor.
she speaks openly of her fear
while the only other things we know
that she is afraid of are mascots
though this new level of fear
may have even topped that.
we all reassure her that she is a good daughter for having done this
while at the same time privately harboring
our own personal doubts
about the potential risk/reward factor involved in her choice.
about 3 minutes went by
and this is a picture of amy re-entering her house
after she has been called in
to where her mother sits with her new iPad
and her first ‘question/glitch.’
she looks frightened and unsure of what awaits her inside.
“choices are the hinges of destiny.”
