When I was a kid, there were records.
Big records. And then as a teen I had
small records..45's. Then came tapes.
And then cassettes, and cds and I-pods.
When I was a kid, we got a television
and it was black and white. I was 8.
Mom and Dad didn't get a color TV,
until I had moved out by quite a few
years. Then comes along HD, and
Flat screens. Some almost as big
as movie screens. Some of them so
tiny they sit in your hand.
When I was a kid, we had a camera.
And then as a teen I had a small
camera called a Brownie. And later,
came the Polaroid, with instant pictures.
And then there were digital camera's.
And IPod cameras.
When I was a kid, we had a movie camera.
16mm. And along came the 8mm when I
had kids. And then there was the VCR, and

other to read, all instantly.
When I was a kid in school we used pencils
and pens to write on paper. Then in high school
we got to use typewriters. Then came electric
typewriters. And down the road came computers.
Starting out huge, and now they are small enough
to carry around. And even small enough to hold in
your hand. Talking to people instantly.
So many things are speeding up our lives....all this
technology, getting to be as fast as light.Some of it
is old and outdated within months of buying the news
and the fastest. Some times
I think it is leaving us humans behind.
