I seem to spend an inordinate amount of time engaged in electronic distraction. I mean, we have four computers, two video players, two DVD players, a huge TV, two Sony Walkmans and an iPod, not to mention digital cameras, mobile phones and the like. So much distraction, but from what? And at what cost? Sometimes I wonder what my memories will consist of twenty or thirty years from now, with so much time absorbed in unreality. Not that I don’t like all these things. I do, and that’s part of the problem. I guess it’s all about striking a balance.
