Living in Black and White
Living is doing. Working, playing, travelling, playing music, hiking etc etc etc. You can't do that when you are staring at a small hand held device can you? But not everything is black and white. There are advantages to living in the 21st century. I do believe there are not as many restrictions in life for women. However that would depend on the culture you are born into. There are many more advances in many fields that have improved our lives. But then there is the down side. We have begun to make huge leaps in polluting our planet. But this is not meant to be a critique on the decades. Just some thoughts about the bigger picture.
Some things never change though. The desire to love and be loved. The desire to have a decent standard of living. To do something we love to do. To bring up our children in a safe environment. And so on. Sometimes no matter what we do though we cannot control every aspect of our lives. Some things happen that we have no control over. And those things can profoundly affect us. But ultimately it is important not to lose sight of the fact that we are fortunate to have a life. And live it we should as best as we can. And perhaps letting history be our guide. Here is to a better 21st century!
