Threshold Generation

Family PicnicThreshold Generation.
That’s what they’re calling us.
We are predictably the Last Generation to have Grown Up without Computer Technology
And that’s ForEver
Like the Last Generation, a century or so ago, to have grown up without a Telephone
Or the Last Generation, five centuries or so ago, to have grown up without the Printing Press
Or the Last Generation, thirty-five centuries or so ago, to have grown up before the Invention of the Wheel
We are the Last people populating the earth to have known what Life without Computer Technology was Like.
And with that comes the responsibility,
That to Future Generations
The Lessons we have to teach shall not be Lost.

No Apologies!

The view from a Subway Platform earlier this week

The view from a Subway Platform earlier this week

I make No Apologies!
I think that Life is Beautiful
An Awfully Wonderful Adventure
A Gymboree for the Soul
An Opportunity to learn Forgiveness and Strength and Surrender
To be In Relationship with One Another — All of Us
To develop Attributes and cultivate Spiritual Values
And I don’t think there is Any Such thing as a Bad Year or even a Bad Day!
I make No Apologies for that!
