What Would We do? In the Dark and Hidden from Technology

It’s amazing how many things you can miss while taking a short break from social media. After only two weeks of non-stop business learning at UVic, I’ve come back a few times to discover that some blue and black dress has blown up on the internet setting people into a frenzy because it actually looks white and gold. Just before that there was a blogging uproar and the blogosphere turned upside down after two amazing blogs set some impressive and apparently overpowering records. I feel like I’m out of loop already!

Free verse and my poetic mind. I can’t believe the speed of these times… there’s no rewind.

A blackout?

Numbers pile up as statistics run wild and technology rapidly increases faster than babies are born and all the while I sit here in a little corner of the interwebs and wonder to myself…

What would happen if it all just disappeared?

What would we do??

We would be in the dark and hidden from technology.

Maybe it’s because I’m really upset that Revolution was cancelled, but I have dreams of the power going out for good and finally being “off-grid” officially and forever.

If it actually happened we could totally bring back those tin can string telephones and have to walk miles speak-238488_1280just to say hello to people and friends in the same town. We would never know where anyone was anymore so we would have to come together once again and send telegrams and bring back horse carriages and forget about cars…

*Day Dreamers*

Unfortunately there would be no heat in winter. That would suck… but that’s OK because we would just burn our furniture and cars. We could live in huts in the forest and let all the plant life take over the cities and we would no longer see the concrete jungle…

The stars would be brighter.

Would time melt away?

Sometimes my mind goes crazy.

  1. When I was away for Christmas I didn’t use anything, I felt so alive, my creativity shot thought the roof,we were in Jamaica,I had brought with all I had needed to do my art,we were there for six days, I did some of my best work while I was there,I got to write, I can’t begin to say what not having did,I have tried this since I’ve been home but it’s not the same.

    • I hear that for sure Sheldon. Technology rules us and as writers we are linked and intertwined so intricately that sometimes we lose the real world somewhere… at least that’s how I feel sometimes. It’s almost impossible to write on paper, with a pen or pencil and away from a computer. I can’t even imagine how long it must have taken to write books in the old days!! 😛
