Once upon a time TVs looked like this.
When color TVs came out, we thought it was really special.
Today we are seeing 3D TVs.
You need special glasses to see the 3D. TVs are getting bigger and flatter and faster and ... bigger.
It seems like most people have cable or satellite TV these days. You can get over 100 channels.
But today I disconnected my satellite TV. I went from multiple sports, news, movie and other channels to broadcast TV. I now have five stations: ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS and Fox. I also have two other stations that seem to show reruns.
So now I am doing things like reading. As in books. That you can hold in your hands and turn the pages. As in what this person is doing.
Okay. It's a bit cold here to be reading outside by a river. But I can read books and newspapers and enjoy the quiet. It is sort of like the fantasy I have always had of living in a remote cabin with no phones, no TV, no computer, no anything but quiet and nature.
Everything is good in moderation. TV is nice and I will get reconnected in the future. But for now the solitude is refreshing.
Thanks for stopping by.
