The (innate) way of relating … in step with the times

Ilustration of Pawel Kucynski

Currently, just a few years old children learn to relate to tablets and smartphones. When I was a child this was unimaginable. But that’s not a good thing. Probably today’s children no longer know how to relate, and they know how to put their own face into play. Obviously it almost always happens that you are never innate in knowing how to do something that you can keep up with the times. And in 10 years who knows, wireless devices will be a distant memory.

🎵 Sophie and the Giants – Right Now

LYRIC

[Verse 1]
Used up all my lives
Out run throwing knives
But it’s over now, over now
Been down deep so long
Giving that up
‘Cause enough’s enough
But it’s over now, over now

[Pre-Chorus]
No more
Dancing in the shower now
Turning up the music loud
Loving myself, no doubt
You got this, you got this

[Chorus]
(No) Oh, we’re young and wasted
And we’re coming up stronger now
Yeah, we made it, ayy
Right now, right now
Yeah, I’m all done waitin’
And I’m coming up stronger now
Oh, I made it, hey
Right now, right now
[Post-Chorus]
Ooh, ooh
Yeah, I wanna let it all out, hey
Right now

[Verse 2]
Drink holy wine
My God, she says, “It’s fine”
‘Cause I’m better now, better now
Ain’t standing still
Feel no regret
Whеre could I go next?
Oh, it’s bettеr now, better now

[Pre-Chorus]
Done with
Dancing in the shower now
Turning up the music loud (Ayy)
Loving myself, no doubt (Ayy)
You got this, you got this

[Chorus]
(No) Oh, we’re young and wasted
And we’re coming up stronger now
Yeah, we made it, hey
Right now, right now
Yeah, I’m all done waitin’
And I’m coming up stronger now
Oh, I made it, hey
Right now, right now
[Post-Chorus]
Ooh, ooh
Yeah, I wanna let it all out, ayy
Right now, right now
Ooh, ooh
And I ain’t gonna let it burn out, ayy
Right now, right now

[Bridge]
Stepping into the light (Oh, oh, oh)
I can finally live tonight (Oh, oh, oh)
You know we got this
Stepping into the light (Oh, oh, oh)
We can finally live tonight
We got this, we got this

[Chorus]
(No) Oh, we’re young and wasted
And we’re coming up stronger now
Yeah, we made it, ayy
Right now, right now
Yeah, I’m all done waitin’
And I’m coming up stronger now
Oh, I made it, ayy
Right now, right now

[Post-Chorus]
Ooh, ooh
Yeah, I wanna let it all out, ayy
Right now, right now
Ooh, ooh
And I ain’t gonna let it burn out, ayy
Right now, now

Monday walk…Marching into spring — This, that and the other thing

Spring in the desert isn’t exactly like spring in most other places. There are no swaths of wildflowers, no green grass everywhere. Spring comes early too, already on its way at the end of February/beginning of March, when it can be not much above freezing at night and by late afternoon be almost 80F. There […]
