{nature + technology}

The Byrds' cover of Mr. Tambourine Man was playing. I put my feet up on the dash. I read. I ate an orange. I picked at my nail polish. I sent an email to a friend that I haven't heard from in a while.

I think it's funny how people seem to think nature and technology are so discordant with each other, because I really, really love the little junction where they meet. Taking a walk in the mountains with my headphones on, blogging in front of the lake, snapping a picture of a landscape so I can take it home with me in my purse.

You know?

  1. Such a lovely perspective. I love having those little pieces of something peaceful to keep and remember; or feeling most relaxed being in a place I love, doing what I love; and what's a walk without a soundtrack?!

  3. I totally agree! Just the other day I was enjoying sitting out on my balcony watching and listening to a monsoon roll through town whilst surfing around on my iPad. It was a nice combination.

Say anything you want. It doesn't even have to be relevant.
