lol I have to admit my first thought was the rhyme we used to hear as kids, “Pink pink you stink” then the artist, Pink
Red roses the promise of love
Or a first pair of boxing gloves
Yellow denotes friendship and more
Mischief achieved on the dance floor
Pink flowers innocent and sweet
Or perhaps annoying prickly heat
White the purity clear and light
Oh what a bouquet of delight
Every flower a reminder of
Moments spent with you, my love
Indeed a truly welcome sight
My heart immediately took flight
For there upon the kitchen table
Stood a story and not a fable
Ever captured in colourful array
Fills me with joy an instant replay
Of all the moments we have enjoyed
A spectrum of life that will never be destroyed
A light hearted fun song about falling under a bus, hit by a train, sunk at sea, but doing it again.
Innocent fun enjoyable pain
Young enough to do it again
Oh what heavenly delight
Rebound with all your might
Although it’s possible to get knocked down
It’s like winning the triple crown
You never told me about any of this
It certainly is heavenly bliss
I’m fairly certain that when computers were invented, no one could possibly have forseen how valuable and so widely used they would become. If memory serves me correctly, the first computer used punch cards. Of course there were failures along the way. The first real working computer was invented by Alan Turing. I recently watched a compelling movie called the Imitation Game and Benedict Cumberbach played the lead role. The movie outlines his vision, incredible fortitude and brilliance and highlights the tortures and struggles he faced because of his chosen life style. His design changed history and the world and is the bases for all computers today.
Personally, I’ve used several different computers including a Tandy, a Commodore, complete with monochrome monitor and several others. I remember reading and creating code from a magazine that enabled a car to move across the screen, or made fireworks pop and sing and I even designed cities as pictures, the backdrop a setting sun.
With each new upgrade, came more to learn, more parts, but greater freedom.
Today, the list is astounding and we are able to choose a desktop, which I prefer, a lap top, a tablet or who could have imagined the smartphone packing as much gig and ram as my lap top with far reaching on the go freedom. Astounding, profound and exciting.
I know I’m delighted with the age of the computer and it’s continued growth. It gives me an immediate eye on the world. I’m able to reach out and “touch somebody” literally, with words, thoughts, pictures. Equally delightful is the ability to share thoughts and ideas from around the world. I spend hours perusing garden sites, photography, how to videos which weren’t available and which speed up the learning curve and more importantly, other like minded individuals such as you, yes you, the reader of this blog.
The vision and brilliance to conceptualize an idea and make it real is continually exciting and breathtaking. While we have become dependent at work and at home on computers which provide knowledge, entertainment, outlook, news and a variety topics, I believe it’s a good thing.
The moons many phases bring delight
Especially when shining big and bright
Casting an ephemeral glow upon our world
While we dance and sing songs undisturbed
The moon’s shimmering glow
O’er the landscape we all know.
Or resting still beside the shore
Alone or with someone we adore
We sit and gaze so enchanted are we
Our head rested upon bent knee
Our gaze steady fixed and intent
Nothing here to lament
A universe of colour in which to play
Refreshed renewed each and every day
Awash with blues pinks greens and golds
Happily our picturesque landscape unfolds
Wrapping us in such delight
Our hearts could burst so filled with light
Then someone yells take off those rose coloured eyeglasses
That is not what is seen by the masses
Alas I am blind and from memory paint
The world in all it’s glory shall remain
I am happiest here I proclaim
