Electronica

In the last month I have aquired:

  • a new digital camera
  • a new cell phone
  • a new Ipod

and it seems like these pieces of electronica are taking over my entire life.

I love this these toys, I really do, but damn! They all need to be learned, and the learning of them is eating into the productive hours of my day, so much so that I’m starting to question their supposed increased productivity value.

(Oh, and let’s not forget that I’ve only had my MacBook Pro for 6 months and am still in the process of learning it. )

My reading matter lately has skewed heavily towards User’s Guides.  Which is ironic because I am currently writing a User’s Manual, –a personal User’s Manual, so maybe these pieces of electronica are coming into my life at this point to teach me how to negotiate manuals, and learn from them?  I dunno.  All I know is that they’re getting on my nerves, and I needed to escape them.

So this morning I sat meditation, did my wimpish “Jog of Joy,” which is a 12 minute romp around the campus, and ended the day at the Grower’s Market.

Here’s my haul:

Grower's Market haul May 21

From left to right: Strawberry Cream Pie, Grower’s Mkt tee, ramps, asparagus, and above, White Chocolate Macadamia nut cookies, mustard greens (mix), and watercress.  The day was sunny and warm and the turnout was great.

And tomorrow is another day.
