The Daily Grind

  1. That awkward moment when you’re the only person at the Apple Store- that pantheon of the new and high tech – who is reading a book.
  2. I wish computers were more tactile and engaging of the senses.
  3. Seriously, where’s the smell, taste, texture, movement? I’m tired of just sitting and staring at a screen that causes migraines.
  4. I think that’s the problem with computers. For me, at least. They make me feel less alive. Because the only thing engaged is my brain and my fingers. But what about the rest of my body?
  5. Perhaps that’s why Yoga is such an excellent antidote to modern life? Because the rest of the body needs to be heard. It’s tired of sitting in silent retreat.

  1. I think, instead of helping us, the whole new technologie makes us more and more less human. We could talk face to face, but prefer to write messages. Maybe we getting scared of each other. And yes, i think yoga is a good antidote for “normal” life. Gunnar Meinen, Germany

    • Definitely! Technology can definitely be a beautiful gift and bring people together who would never otherwise meet – but it definitely needs healthy boundaries just like anything else so we can remember to experience life and get out of our heads and into our bodies sometimes! Thanks for reading!
