I have watched mothers walking with their children, but texting or talking or checking social media. Really? Be present with the people sitting right in front of you. There is always time to connect with your phone later. The world you live via your phone will still be there. They probably didn’t miss you much. Most people are focused on themselves. I’m not a cynic, really. I just observe.
Great comment. My phone didn’t really break. In fact I don’t even have an iPhone, (it’s an Android lol). This is just commentary on what I see around me.

Great commentary! And I like your humor. 😄
Oh yeh? I’ll be waiting patiently for you take on Cannery Row 😆
Thank you Roth!
This is absolutely great and so relatable. Such vivid imagery and humorous expression 😊
Thank you 753!
Probably not as amusing as you’ve written it, so sorry 🙂
Thank you Fleur, actually my phone is fine, just commentary on what I see.
Good to know 🙂 Thanks for responding to my comment–that’s always a nice thing.
ohh i see
Said the blind man to the deaf dog.
Hi! Just had time to look around more at some of your work and it’s great, I really like it. I like your sense of humor, and undeniably there is a Shel Silverstein/Roald Dahl feel to it but I love that, I love them, and you make it similar, but different. So much here I like, but when you really hit it you are just really talented imo. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Jill. Wow, two of my absolute favorite authors! What a compliment!!! How can I throw Steinbeck into the mix? I’ll have to work on this.
Just another sign of the Devolution of Man!
Great poem. Do you mind if I share your work with some psychological commentary and link it back to your blog?
Thank you. Please share. I appreciate it.
Will do. You have great artwork and it can have a definite effect on people. The language of the soul is elicited through emotions, laughter being a key aspect of the positive states. Again, thank you for this post.
Thank you again Dr. Maples. May I have your email address? I would like to send you a copy of my book Mountains.
I look forward to it.

Hi. Happy Tuesday. Love this! Thanks for sharing. In humour is found the truth of the state of society today. Have reblogged. Have a wonderful phone-less peaceful day. Best regards. Goff
If only I could get by without another phone forever. I’d be satisfied.
Sometimes I wonder how we managed pre-mobile phone days. Quieter less complex days I think. Have a great day. Goff
The very sad portion is that this is indeed our lives! wow
Agreed. One day maybe the world will reject the phones and talk again. Sigh.
I don’t think rejecting phones will ever happen. But I do hope that one day we talk again and grasp the meaning of true connections 🙂
Surely many peopleś problem today. Made me laugh and also happy that I still have my voice and can use it without any phone.
Same here. What was it ever like before all this “smart’ technology? The world may never know.
The struggle is real.
Looks like my phone! 😆
Time to fix that screen!
Trust me, there’s more than one way to censor someone.
Love It! Made me smile! Thank you.
Thank you! Glad I got a smile out of it.
Thank you Kerrie!
You’re certainly doomed to fade away lmao…
Actually, this is so funny and relate able. We are so dependent on technology now, I would be having the exact same anxieties.
Yes it is hard to watch what we’ve become with all this “smart” technology. Definitely has made us a little more dumb.
But I feel like a superhuman brain machine because of my access to Google
Don’t let it fool ya!
lol *nervous laughter and backs away slowly* 😉
