Watching the world progress has been an incredible experience. It is interesting to see the art world reflect the relative world. Before you know it there will be masterpieces of prominent figures holding smart phones in their portraits. I actually saw one of those wedding cake toppers with the couple portrayed as texting each other. The wedding was a techies' nirvana. It had all kinds of cyber devices floating overhead and techno music vibrating the dance floor. Gone are the days of conventional communication. I am a bit dismayed by the lack of real conversation these days. Then again, I'm simply from a different era.
