Quiet Moment

It’s always a pleasure seeing a completely contented person. It may only be for the briefest moment but sitting still and loosing oneself in thought should be a daily goal for all of us.

Coffee Shop Window

These reflected/see-through window images can become almost dream like. This lady reading in the coffee shop window is surrounded by things that make little sense yet seem to somehow emanate from the page she is reading.

He’s Reading…What?!

It seems that getting information from something made of paper is pretty unusual these days. Here’s a rare photo of a man, beating the heat, obviously enjoying something that doesn’t take batteries….Wow!

Portrait of Sarah

large-0370162.jpg

In case I haven’t told you before, my wife Sarah is a voracious reader. I admire that trait very much and often wish I read more myself. However I’m dyslexic and content myself to more visual activities. I took this picture of her in our local Starbucks as she was chugging along trying to finish a book that she didn’t like.

Why read a book you don’t like you ask? She belongs to a book club of very fierce opinionated ladies and it was required reading for this month’s meeting.

The Printed Page

The sharpness of this photograph is not the best but I like it anyway. It was taken in the wonderful new cafe at the Boston Public Library. Clustered around the coffee bar were a group of people all reading books or newspapers. Nobody was looking at a digital device. Refreshing!

Mr. Analog Escapes Facebook

I’m drawn to people reading paper books. No kindles, no Ipads just those old-fashioned things that we grind up pine trees to make. I think it’s partly because this digital world we now find ourselves in seems increasingly overwhelming. 

For a couple of years now I’ve been badly addicted to Facebook. It’s a big black hole. A time waster without equal.

It’s time to cut back on all my digital time wasters!
