Media Pollution

by Stephen Pasquini on November 29, 2017

I remember a time when I went to bed without a smartphone.

It was a quieter time, a less troubled time. Now it follows that I go wherever it goes. If not in my hand, always by my side.

Distracted

Idle moments turn into information for information’s sake. At the cost of my attention.

Justify it I do, no time wasted, learning, evolving, connecting to the point where we are all disconnected.

On the eve of the end of net neutrality, the death of the free internet. But was it every free? The best-paid SEO rises to the top of the Google search engine.

There has been a long lapse between when I last wrote and now. Many websites have popped, and one, well it is lost to the woods. The cream that rose to the top, sip, drink up, savor the flavor of a warm new cup. And now it is gone.

And this is life, here one day, gone the next. Close my eyes and move on. Tomorrow is a new day, with new media, and a consuming consumption, eating away at my presence. Distracted, so distracted.

Hi I’m Stephen and this is the Pasquini Family Blog. This project began as a personal blog in 2005 but I hope that it may grow into a living family history. Life as I have experienced it is so rich with beauty and meaning. There is so much to experience, to feel, taste and touch. I am overwhelmed and in awe of our choices we have every day, in gratitude for what I have been given, in search of meaning.
