Too Much Information

Too Much Information

There is too much of everything—
things constantly developing.
There is no time to fool around.
We’re always off and “somewhere bound.”
The days of lying in the grass
and watching ants? They are long past.
Instead I lie upon my back
with laptop and my battery pack,
plugged into the confusing world,
downloading facts dispensed and whirled
together in my spinning brain.
I want a simple world again
composed of only what’s around me.
All these facts stress and confound me—
glossing over the fact that
I’m really only where I’m at!

Ironic that as I tried to save this, my computer refused to do so or to add the photograph to the post  because the startup disk was full.  No more memory––too much information!!! I’m going to try to post this, remove things from my computer, and then post the photo to go with it. (After one hour of removing files from my computer—success!!! Photo is added.)

Overwhelming is the prompt word today.

    Good one. Yes, I think our minds can get overloaded. Maybe this is why I appreciate the occasional blizzard when you must stay home and be cocooned in white, insulated from all the stresses of the world. (Unless the power goes off.)
    It adds a cute touch that your computer has memory overload and won’t accept your pic. 🙂

      I know.. I thought the same. These synchronicites.. plus right now Morrie is whining to go for a walk and I’m saying “Just a minute. . . .” as I type this. I’m off!!! Photo posted, by the way.

      And.. I used to love being snowbound as a little girl and again once when I was teaching.. went to a friend’s house and it was fun except for the fact she wouldn’t turn the heat on and they had no fireplace. I would have been better off staying at home!!!!

        That’s me…avoid the news and just post on my blog. I ‘still’ do not own a cell phone nor do my adult children and we’re all surviving. That helps me stay somewhat unplugged. haha

        I hate cell phones. I have one but it is always either at home or out of power. I don’t know how to text. I really resent the fact that everyone with me is plugged into everyone else on earth that they know at all times. I like to be where I am when I’m there and then leave it behind and go to a new place. Blogging is different. I do spend too much time at it, but it is on a computer and when I shut the computer it stays shut.. not at the beck and call of the universe.
