We are developing. Really?
As many you have seen the technology boom across the world, I now realise that my mind has just matured enough to understand the impact of it. I lived my childhood in a rural region where vehicles of any sort was an amusement and now, in my thirties I live this town where congestion is a daily routine.
I am not really convinced we are developing. We make things complex and then build tools to solve it. We have the computer which puts together the pixels to convince us that they are letters and numbers. We have smartphones to take photos, and to take millions photos so that neither the camera nor our memory can hold it. And when we lose the camera, we worry about the photos which we have only looked at once - while we actually took it.
In my childhood, I have seen my dad and my mom work during day and we all had plenty of time in the evening for gardening, cooking and spend time with our friends and relatives.
These days, I really can't figure out what the people are living for. Food? No... that can't be. We are working 24 hours and don't have the time to eat. Money? probably.. thinking it can buy all the worldly pleasures and satisfy us. But how many of us make that much money?
Stop our desires and we will be satisfied with our simple life. I am sad the way our young children embracing and craving for the digital toys. Why as adults, we don't have the time and the spirit to put that little spark of love to the nature in those little minds?
I am really glad to know there are people across the world and in developed countries having the real passion for plants and animals. But I am sure, they out numbered!!!

I agree Mark. With all the digital distractions about it's important to switch off and appreciate the beauty of the world around us.
Its up to the parents to bring a good balance. My kids have electronics but still enjoy the park, bike rides and helping me in the garden. :)
My kids grew up playing outside enjoying the fresh air and having fun. Now in this electronic age I can still say that they love the outdoors. My daughter has her own gardening business and my eldest son and my husband take walking holidays every year. My youngest son loves to travel to other countries to see the wildlife and take photographs.
