On the Border of All or Nothing - Page 2
Without making this too much of a stretch, it kind of worries me on a personal level. I’m over 50, which, although to the modern way of thinking is the new 40 (yeah, tell that to my face) is downright ancient when it comes to things like technology.
Sure, I have a blog, and as I said, I’m addicted to my computer. But on many fronts, I’m so far behind the curve I can’t even see what I’m chasing. By the time I catch up on new technology, it’s obsolete and something else has come along to confuse me.
So does this mean I should just give up and resign myself to being overwhelmed and slightly clueless? Should I go back to writing everything on yellow legal pads and call it a day? Does life have to be all or nothing—you either get it or you don’t, and if you don’t, you’re consigned to the scrap heap?
I don’t know the answer. What I do know is that I don’t want to be left behind, any more than Borders does. So I suppose I’ll continue to try and manage things like my blog and all of the internet platforms that go along with it without drowning in technology and constantly popping Tylenol. And I’ll pray that there’s a place for people like me who don’t know it all but still want to be part of the conversation.
I’ll also hope that Borders can find its way and stay viable. I’d really miss it if it disappeared. Because life should never be all or nothing.
