How Far We Have All Come ... and ... How Fast, But Slow.

I took this photo over the weekend at the Island County Fair on Whidbey Island, WA.  This was in the antiques building.  I was shocked and cracked up at the content of my shot.  I was going for the old wagon and it took me a minute to feel the irony of the phone booth lurking in the background.  I'm sure I just liked the vertical and red or something for my composition.  Think of the actual time period between these two items.  Really not that long!!!  But yet, a really long time!  I am the queen of fragmented sentences in case you haven't noticed, but I type as I think.  I guess I must be a fragmented thinker as well.  Anyway, it makes me think how far we have come as Americans and how much has been accomplished in an actually short period of time.  My son gets a kick of asking me "Did you have this or that as a kid?"  What a lifechanger the internet has been, when I didn't even have computers growing up and now I am able to market our goods around the world because of it!  I am in awe when I think of the future and the rest of my lifetime.  What has yet to be invented or cured?  What will I witness in history?  It seems to all unfold slowly, but boy does it go fast!

Here is some eye candy that Scott has been working on.  Right now we sell all of these individually in our retail studio/gallery, but I'll set some aside soon and list them up so you can get your hands on them if you want to.  Ciao for now!  Monica
