Here is a link (here) to a report about cell phone/smart phone photos that should be required watching at every store that sells them. As I've ranted many times before, technology will enslave us all, and we will go there with our thumbs stuck on a keypad, and eyes glued to the shiny touch screen...
future now/then when fame has gathered you into its bundle, and eyes have read your mind in letters; after apprenticeship marks minions by your words, there will remain a face of mystery, legacy aside. nothing soulful escapes furrowed views, you in stoic foreverness and staid:
that is the confident plea I desire for my walk into winter's monochrome read - a chapter begun and ended by chance.
