I watch my children and grand babies interact with their 'devices' and I'm saddened. 'We' remember life before fakebook, instagram, games, puzzles, quizes that tell you how wonderful you are, endless duck-lipped selfies, checking in when you go to the grocery store (I mean, who gives a rip?).. And on and on it goes.
My Grands think I'm weird because I like to light a fire, sit in the dark and 'think' or read a good book, or sit in a chair, looking out a window and watch the rain or snow fall. Sometimes the urge to dig my hands into dirt and plants is overwhelming. I don't think I'm in love with dirt. lol No, it's more a feeling of being connected to Mother Earth and the spiritual forces of Air, Water, Earth, and Fire ..

Which wolf do you feed??
