THE OTHER DAY

I spoke about the importance of rituals. What is interesting is that they change according to culture, religion, and the times.

Who would have ever thought 20 years ago, or even 10, that we would be staring at our phones all day long? So many rituals have changed in such a short time, thanks to Harvard dropouts and the like.

I wonder about the stories our grandchildren and great grandchildren will tell based on our contemporary rituals. I hope they will be better than "angry birds really pissed me off today!" Even better will be those who say, "My grandparents, who are computer clueless, really pissed me off today. I don't mind at all being linked with angry birds and I imagine you don't either!

Do you even know angry birds? I don't either, but do know many pissed off people.

Enjoy the happy rituals and let the rest go. As someone recently said, "We are all one tweet away from making a fool of ourselves." The question is do angry birds (or people) tweet?

I will start very soon. I want to be a 70 year old tweeting grandpa. I don't think mine could even whistle—let alone a happy tune.

Bye for Now,

Bill
