Day 136- Daughter with cell phone

Day 136- Daughter with cell phone
5 x 7 inches, acrylics on canvas panel
I am not so sure cell phones are as bad as they are claimed to be.
They are a new tool creating a new language, and actually a whole new culture. I think it's very
exciting to watch this culture unfold. People are not perfect, languages are never perfect, and there will be abuses in anything we touch. That is the human condition. But so what? We are in the middle of profound cultural changes- I find it tremendously exciting, and while  I can't profess to understand the world as it is seen through the eyes of  people in their teens and twenties now, I am sure they will do wonderful things with it.
