The sun had at long last, decided to show its face, and after having excitedly chased one another around the garden for twenty minutes or so, Mr Midnight and Sir Winston both then retired to “higher ground” with which to relax and watch the passers-by.
I can´t believe that it´s warmed up a bit Sir Winston. All that wet stuff blocking my breathing apparatus and making me make strange noises was becoming irritating. I don´t like being irritated! It´s certainly a hard life being a Black Forest cat.
Just enjoy the warm rays and how they penetrate your fur Mr Midnight. Honestly, you´re getting just like daddy. He´s from a place they call “England” and he´s always going on about what humans call “the weather”. Apparently, people who come from that part of the world just love talking about the weather. Just relax, feel the warmth and enjoy the moment.
They sat on the top of the hill and observed what was going on beneath them.
There was quite a lot of noise and movement below. People of all ages rushing by, a bus collecting children from school and parked cars attempting to leave their parking spaces at what seemed, to be all at the same time. It was as though the sun had brought everyone out of their “hiding place”.
Look at all that hassle down there Sir Winston. They live very chaotic lives. That warm, bright thing in the sky seems to make humans scatter-brained, especially after such a long period of wetness and darkness.
While half-listening to Sir Winston, Mr Midnight noticed that many humans had devices glued to their ears and absent-mindedly wondered what those things could be.
I very much doubt it Mr Midnight. I don´t think humans hear well at all. Just listen to all that racket they´re making down there. They´re not even aware of how loud they are. If they were sensitive to noise they wouldn´t make such a terrific din. They seem to love loud things.
I must confess, I´m not sure what those strange devices are glued to their ears. All that I know is that they are not always attached to their heads so they must be some kind of hearing aid or something with which to keep the cold out of their ears.
Look, there´s daddy emptying the rubbish in the garden. Let´s run over the road and ask him. He should know.
They both raised their bodies, yawned, made themselves as long as possible by stretching, and then ran down the hill, over the road and into the garden to ask their question.
It´s really weird.
Yes, we appear to have a lot to say, but most of the time our conversations tend to hold little substance or border on banality. The main thing seems to be that we are available at all times, virtually 24/7. It possibly makes us all feel that much safer.
Are humans so insecure? It all seems to be a bit of a waste of time if you don´t really have anything to say, and it does appear to be rather stressful. It´s no wonder that humans appear to be unable to cope with life´s burdens. You make your life a living hell.
But there is nothing wrong with such technology if the quality of the conversation or information is of a high calibre. Humans are free to do what they so wish with their spare time but they should also, possibly try to understand the dangers of technological addictions. The natural surroundings in which we live also have so much to offer.
I guess that these days, it´s rather difficult to decipher what is to be termed as “quality” information. We are surrounded by so much input that the human body does tend to get bombarded with so much useless information. It´s virtually impossible deciding what´s “quality information” and what is not.
Through evolutionary development, human beings have advanced at a great pace but the human brain, as oppose to recent technological advancements, hasn´t really sufficiently kept up with the new “state-of-the-art” technology. For normal, human beings, ………
. . . . technology seems to have over-taken everybody. Technology and the “information-flood” overloads your bodily systems which frequently seems to result in grave stress patterns. There is too much information to digest and not enough time to sort it all out.
Carry on with your addictions folks ! 🙂
Enjoy your time on this planet. If you do things that give you pleasure (and do not harm another) then you should do it. If playing about with telephones is your hobby, then do it. Life is to be enjoyed!
If you like reading our blog and it gives you pleasure, then please continue to do so. If you don´t enjoy our little discussions, you are free to go your way. We obviously, want you to stay tuned and hope that we do not over-burden you with “our information”.
