what a funny world we live in!!!

the big announcement of this day, is really that there are hundreds of thousands of maples, oaks, elms, liquidambers, ginghkos, birches and poplars.....with millions of leaves, that are turning every imaginable color.....that each leaf is a work of art....on every hill and streetcorner in this country.
a free and extraordinary gift that deserves praise and observation.
but in the normal course of human events, it is a miracle that is hardly even worth mentioning.
we have created a strange and insular world for ourselves...many miracles around us, seem largely disregarded...and yet we find many small novelties to take up our attention.

in the discussion about the internet and preserving our humanity, i dont think that the internet makes us less "human," but i do think it severs our connection with nature, and our ways of observing the world, firsthand, and in a tactile and soulful, cleansing way.
the loss of our connection, firsthand, with nature, i think, is something that is psychically and physiologically disruptive for human beings.

Darn, I was hoping they'd announce that you could finally put whatever app you wanted on the iPhone you own.
