Too much of technology in our modern lives: from the cell phone, the MP3 players, the media players: there is just too much input to process, at least for me.
But there is one piece of technology I have come to really appreciate in the last few days: and that, surprisingly, is the Digital Photo Frame.
As one picture follows the other within its sleek contours, I am transported to different times, different places. Pictures of friends, romantic moments, sheer fun, of incredible beauty— all captured at different times of my life, and now displayed in a timed, unbroken chain.
Lines and snatches of writing ideas start coming to me, unbidden, out of nowhere. Who knew a piece of digital technology would prove to be such an inspiration? But so it is.
That is funny to me. I worked on a project advertising a digital picture frame but didn’t think much of the idea at the time. You have made me reconsider.
