Strung Out…Big Time

It may be because it’s raining right now or I just watched a powerful video on the events of 9/11 that I’m posting this photo. Somehow this drug addict seems emblematic of the mental state of our President. Scrounging around for the next media high to fuel his insatiable ego, regardless of the suffering involved.

This poor guy and Donald Trump desperately need help. I pray they get it.

Alone Together

This is taken in our local Starbucks at midday. I was struck by how many people, especially the ones in the foreground, seemed not particularly engaged with anybody. The exception to this is the lady at the right in the pink dress. Maybe this lack of focus is a result of us becoming so addicted to digital screens, not faces.

I really do wonder how our pervasive digital world is affecting our health. Both physical and especially mental. Speaking for myself, I’m vacillating between deleting all social media and embracing them wholeheartedly. 

I watched this guy for almost a half an hour and he never changed his expression. In fact he hardly moved.

Addiction Pure And Simple

Digital Addiction….I feel it in myself and it’s beginning to really bother me.
Check out….”Irresistible: The Rise of Addictive Technology and the Business of Keeping Us Hooked” by Adam Alter. It’s quite scarey.

Starbucks Before My First Coffee Hit

You know the feeling. Eyes blurred, mind dull, attitude grim. Sure signs of a coffee addict waiting for his first hit.

There’s not much to say about this photograph. It’s a hard image. It’s about destruction and pain and a craving that tears at your soul.

It Is A Shame…(Not The Bar, The Law)

Significantly reduced help for these folks under the proposed new health law….SAD!
