Is social media the soma of our age?

"Soma may make you lose a few years in time," 
the doctor went on. 
"But think of the enormous, immeasurable durations 
it can give you out of time. 
Every soma-holiday is a bit of 
what our ancestors used to call eternity." "
Aldous Huxley Brave New World 1932

Dragin' flies

"The dragonfly!
Distant mountains reflected
in his eyes."

“When tea becomes ritual, 
it takes its place at the heart of our ability to see 
greatness in small things. 
Where is beauty to be found? 
In great things that, like everything else, 
are doomed to die, 
or in small things that aspire to nothing, 
yet know how to set a jewel of infinity 
in a single moment?” 
Muriel Barbery

There were many people there 
But not one of them heard it."

Too old for Tuesday

"There's ageism in everything. I don't give a hoot. 
It isn't what other people think; 
it's what you think. 
But it's hard to come to terms with getting older. 
I admire people like Vivienne Westwood." 
Cyndi Lauper

"I've been running a full marathon every year 
for more than 20 years, 
and my record is getting worse. 
Getting older, 
getting worse. 
It's natural. "
Haruki Murakami
