Reflections while waiting for Carousel of Progress to start at Walt Disney World

Cyberspace is where you’re at when you’re on the phone. -John Perry Barlow

Waiting for the ride.

Waiting in the dark.

The babble of voices.

The building anticipation.

The sense of…

Flashes in the dark?

Illuminated faces…

Checking emails

Checking Instagram

Checking Snapchat…

Who commented

Who liked…

No one notices the NOW that goes on;

No one immerses themselves in real experience;

No one lives the memories they’ll enjoy

Twenty years from now looking at

Digital photos on their TVs.

My smartwatch hums —

A Medium response!

My phone comes out of my pocket.
