I’m living in the future.
Really it’s true. I frequently see electric cars with self driving capabilities. I I talk to a robot every morning and get my own personalized information whenever I want almost instantly. My house is smart and only getting smarter. I can travel to any part of the world in a few hours. I have a super computer / personal assitant in my pocket and I have affordable healthcare and high quality diverse food available 24/7 at a reasonable price. Space flight is moving forward faster than at any point in my life and private enterprise is driving it. I fly a drone on a regular basis for work and I have a video capable phone. Only thing I’m missing right this second is a tricorder. Things are only going to get better and less expensive. Life is getting faster as well and that is a crux of my future problem. With everything available and almost instantaneous, life seems to be moving at light speed. I’m and not sure whether I’m actually happy and have the time to appreciate all this incredible abundance the future has brought me. Right now my future is needing to slow down so I can enjoy and live this future as fully as possible.

I document life and tell visual stories for a living and the ways to express myself have gotten so diverse and incredible that I pick my tools like an artist picks their brushes. This future is now and I’m privileged to be part of it.
