And I have heard it said that the only thing constant is change. And in other thoughts, as if on cue the other day, it could have been a scene straight out of a Broadway play as I looked up while riding the subway train and going my way. Just about everyone on the subway car that I was sitting in was picking up their cell phone at the exact same time in synchronicity, fidgeting with them and then putting them to their ears at the same time and listening to them or talking to them upon coming out of the subway tunnel into the above ground light, as if one was given a green light and one quick second to receive an invisible signal that said "You can now talk on and fidget with your cell phone before the train goes underground again and you lose this signal." And this was an almost eerie scene to me in the age of technology, high tech gadgets and the programming of a robotic humanity to adapt to these gadgets that goes with it. And it almost parodies my blogaholicness on this computer to me. Does this one subway car event reflect the rest of the subway cars on that train and the rest of the subway lines here in the New York City metropolitan subway transit system and the rest of the world and nation. And for some reason that verse from one of those rap songs on that Grandmaster Flash, The Furious Five and Grandmaster Melle Mel Sugar Hill Records cassette tape comes to mind, "And don't be a slave to no computer". Could their songs and lyrics have been a prophecy of our time. And I look at the date of this day on that Gregorian calendar, and this day seems to be May Day. Workers of the world unite. Have a great technology and May Day day.
