The World is Amazing

The more that time passes, the more accustomed we become to all the new gadgets and technological marvels that research, discovery, and innovation bring us. How many of us get up each day, reach for our smartphone, look at emails, check the weather, and scan FaceBook and Twitter, all before we even head out the door? How many of us listen to music at work, in the car, or at the gym on an iPod? How many of you are reading this on your smartphone or iPad or laptop right now? As for me, I’m writing this post on my laptop which wirelessly connects to the internet which, in turn, allows me to access the server that hosts my blog over half a continent away. How can anyone not reflect for a moment on everything I’ve just written and not think that’s pretty amazing?
