Where I Stand

I sit, pondering about the universe around me. I have found a way to type with my iPad above me one-handed as I now lie down in the grass in the backyard. All it took was using the bench as a stabilizer for one corner. It's wooden, so it doesn't interfere with the electric signals my hands make.

I have my bike now so I have free transportation across the city once I get the bike tires pumped up again. It's been well over two months since I left my aunt's and able to ride it.

I wonder if it is advertising that is the root of so many of society's ills as james suggests. It certainly contributes. It is slightly ironic that I am writing up a media press release for the non-profit I'm helping, given that I've purposely eradicated most forms of media from my life.

I wonder if I'll bike throughout the winter. It is coming, or so I've heard.

Current Location: Canada, Ontario, The Village

Connecting by phone was hard, we never did a couple of months ago, and I Just caught up on your last few posts and wow. We can try again? *hugs*. I have a pretty strong feeling you will, in time, be back and better than ever, whatever that means to you this time around.

I still remember the more meaningful thoughts I had, one evening, while laying on the grass, watching the clouds. Not quite the same as typing on in iPad, but still, it can certainly put important things into perspective.

Bike -- glad you've got transportation again. :) I don't own a bike personally; I prefer walking when I want to take the green option. I don't know if you'll be able to bike in winter -- can you take public transit where you're living?

Advertising: advertisers can only go with what people already want, so I think it's more likely our own greed that is the root of society's ills. Perhaps advertising builds upon it, but greed has a way of growing in the individual, regardless of outside influence.
