The 05/29/13 Joy Jar

29 May


Moi is not a big cell phone user. She uses it on a need to use basis mainly because it is smarter than she is. She wanted to use the phone, but it wouldn’t work. Finally, she figured out that it wasn’t they battery or anything she did. The SIM card died or isn’t working. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is a working cell phone just in case.

Right, my phone. When these things first appeared, they were so cool. Only when it was too late did people realize they are as cool as electronic tags on remand prisoners.”

Email, instant messaging, and cell phones give us fabulous communication ability, but because we live and work in our own little worlds, that communication is totally disorganized.

I think we have the attention span of a gnat. You know, with cell phones and Twitter.

Moi is trying to learn how operate her new smart phone. Moi must be the last person in America to get a smart phone, all the twelve year olds have them. Moi’s old phone was considered dumb by smart phone standards, but the phone was way smarter than moi. It is at times like this that a little glass of wine makes the moment so much more mellow.. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is a really good glass of wine.

Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.”
Ernest Hemingway


I love everything that is old; old friends, old times, old manners, old books, old wines.”
