You know what, I don’t even have a cellphone, and maybe that’s the way to go. That way you aren’t flipping it face up every 5 minutes in class, you’re not peaking at it underneath your jacket or desk. That way you can actually enjoy the world around you, or if nothing less, experience it. With your nose down in that luminescent screen the world around you fades away. The colors aren’t vivid enough, the imagery isn’t “stylized” to your liking. Well the world wasn’t built for perfection, it was built for beauty for you, for me, for all of us. Built to be seen by the world and experienced by those aware enough to appreciate it. A small screen can’t measure up to the crunching of dry leaves, the fading yellow of the maples, the rich scent of evergreens, the deep canyons of red and orange, the fiery sunset bursting the sky with painted explosions. If people didn’t have their noses glued to the unconscious yammering that spewed from a metal box maybe they could experience a world built just for them and their livelihood. But if you ask them, there’s an app for that. Just look up.
