My perception has become too deep and the world too shallow, Gabriela. I feel that Big Brother has already arrived and the true freedom that I felt when I was young is almost gone. We will soon be watched by UAVs as well as by electronic means, and the people I knew are gone to death or far away in unknown places. We need fewer gadgets and twitters and more human interaction. I don't think we will get them.
"old" is relative - back when I was playing games on facebook - about 3 or 4 years ago I made friends with some team members. there was a guy of 13y.o. from Singapore who was looking for foreign friends with whom he could practise English. I made a comment on his status update and his classmate said "where did you meet this old girl with funny name?"
that made me laugh, as usually people think I'm 18 and everyone from 15 to 50 calls me "sweetie"
Adroitly wrought. Gives real pause, sends shivers down the ol' spine. Though I'm relatively young, I've started to collect a few ghost, started to haunt a few old geographies, the sort you can't ever go back to, really. That odd feeling of limbo in your own skin, place, time.
