After clearing photos from my cell phone, I discover short walking videos taken last month. When I put my finger on the video, it stops. I can then capture that frame as a picture, the gravel photo. I'm feeling tech smart learning more about my cell phone (I've had for about three years).
As I'm elevated by all that, the TV is on. I watch a beautiful commercial for a vehicle with a price tag I know is well over $70,000.00 dollars. Mind you...Watching via a $60.00 dollar indoor television antenna.
Anyway, I am not disturbed by the grand canyon gap between the bottom and top tiers of today's economy. I do care though.
My concern in that moment plops onto questioning where I am, how did I get here, and where am I able to go.
I am not a person to aspire to reach owning an expensive vehicle, not my thing. If I could, then helping someone who aspires to that goal, to reach their dream, is the side I am comfortable with.
There is a tinge of irony, though, that I see the ad for free while folks that can afford that vehicle are probably paying hundreds of dollars a month for TV reception.
Other than that to ponder on a Friday night, I made a large sweet tea that has a taste of what I imagine is a strong brewed forest floor flavor.
