Race for square footage

We buy,

And then we flip,

And then we buy some more.

Mega mansions with space to

Share with none,

We surround ourselves with gizmos,

And reach out to connect to the world

With technology.

Touch, personal, discarded

In favor of virtual love,

Surrounded by trinkets,

Prisoners of four walls,

We compete in the race

For thousands of square feet.

And then we wait

For our final call,

To be confined in

A dark, windowless resting place

Six feet down under.

 

 

Blogging 101: Today’s Assignment

A comic take on homework assignment for Blogging 101 course.

Assignment 2: Title and Tag line

The assignment looked very simple.  I thought I will breeze through it.  Little did I know, after leaving my homework days so deep in my past, that I would spend next few hours trying to perfect my tag line. I am happy that I was happy with my title, otherwise who knows how many more hours I would have spent trying to “perfect” my “title”.  Looking at the blog posts from my fellow blogmates ( can I copyright “blogmates”), I am sure that I would have spent several more hours.  But what a wonderful few hours those were.  So many friends in the cloud came up with valuable suggestions.  I also got the inspiration for a poem (Strange World of Internet) that I posted in my blog.  Learning, having fun, meeting new friends, albeit virtually, what more can any one ask for.  Now back to the real world till next assignment. So far so good.
