The Grand Finale Days


Here it is the last of the summer days and my trusty watering can is soon to be stored away. So what’s the topic for these in-between days? There’s an interesting read I just delved into called ‘The Mobile Wave. How Mobile Intelligence will Change Everything’ by Michael Saylor. Although briefly into its beginning chapters, on the back of the book there’s a quick list of perspectives that grab the reader’s attention. Here’s one that may interest some of you. “Cars, homes, fruit, art, and more will be “tagged” so they can you tell you about themselves.” So while an app telling me more about the fruit we eat is appealing, I wonder about the farmer growing the fruit. 

Mobile intelligence is changing the global landscape and how most if not of all us work, live and run a business. But how will it change what we know as our private and intimate landscape, our garden space? I’m tempted to contact the author because this reminds me of a conversation on a plane last October with a young urban individual who worked in a company that was revolutionizing how diabetes was tested. It was an interesting concept and certain to have its place in helping the individuals who live with this disease. But when the conversation turned to his country of origin and how this once flourishing agriculturally based area shifted all of its efforts toward technology, a sudden pause loomed when I asked, ‘But will you be able to eat a smartphone?”

While I expect mobile intelligence shifts to bombard us and change the way we live, I shall keep the trusty watering can nearby and continue to promote locally grown, produce your own and always keep yourself surrounded with a beautifully designed space. On that note, Aldous Huxley provides the quote for this day. “There’s only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving and that’s your own self.” Never lose touch with creating your own wave!

Thank you, Carol for yesterday’s wonderful feedback and for your loyal readership.
