This was taken in the Sculpture Garden at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. So many beautiful things to look at yet many of the people were just sitting there attending to their cellphones. Although I’m a compulsive internet user myself, I find the way these devices intrude into every aspect of our life to be disturbing. It’s virtually impossible to escape them and unfortunately there’s no going back – the genie is out of the bottle. Maybe I’m just a luddite. When I was a child I knew an older guy who steadfastly maintained that it was impossible for a man to be on the moon – and this even after the first moon landings. Am I like that: refusing to accept that times have changed and unable to adapt?
