Do you ever imagine what would have happened had you made different choices in life?
Or imagine where you might have been if you chose a different career path? Or a college?
Imagine if you had overslept or did something different the day you met your significant other (if you have one). Would you have had that chance again?
Can you imagine what life would be like without all this technology we hold near and dear? I am sure many of us remember a day without all of this stuff … but can you imagine life without it now?
What about trying to imagine all the items John Lennon talked about in his famous song? A lot of the things he sings about would make this world a whole heap better, that’s for sure.
Could you ever imagine what it would be like to be homeless or truly down on your luck. Can you even do it?
Try and imagine what might have happened if you hadn’t ever been born. What might have happened. Do you imagine your soul would have gone somewhere else?
When you look back at your childhood, could you ever have imagined you are where you are in life? If you had the chance, what do you imagine you would say to your 10-year-old self?
Imagine there weren’t any blogs?
Sheesh. That’s scary.
Imagine a day where newspapers, phone booths, magazines, film cameras, CDs and other items like that no longer exist. Some of them are already on their way out.
Imagine, if you will, a day when kids will not know the feeling of a newspaper, understand what it meant to deposit 25 cents for two more minutes, flip through Time, or record a CD. Heck, we’re getting to the point already where the younger generation has no idea what a mixed tape is.
It’s all happening so fast.
Time flies by, technology grows and the things many have known and loved starts to disappear. Americana, in some eyes, changes. The corner store. The five and dime. Mom-and-pop gas stations. Baseball card packs with crappy gum. Penny candy.
It all disappears.
And everything continues to move onward, steamrolling a path along the way.
The changes happen fast and so many things get forgotten.
