A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Today was such a beautiful day in the neighborhood. For me, I would say today was support your local Asian-American business day. First, I went to the dentist to get my teeth cleaned. My dentist is a young Asian-American man – I’ve been going to for over a year, now. The office is clean and the technology/instruments he uses are current and not circa 1970 models, like my previous dentist. Next up, I went to get a massage in the ghetto of Chinatown tucked away in this small clean, peaceful place located in a traditional Chinese herbal pharmacy. “Linda” is the massage therapist, she is not proficient in English, however she gives a good Tui Na massage – I’ve been going to her for over 2 years now. After the massage, I walked to the “Village” experiencing the sun, sights and sounds along the way. Then I strolled to Soho to window shop and salivate over the items I want — however cannot have. I arrived home and this is what I posted to my Facebook status…

Digital Ghetto

This ‘digital ghetto’ I live in isolates me from being connected and being present
The opportunity to interact and be at hand with real people and the real world has been replaced with this new reality I’ve been sold.
Why visit with neighbors?
When being on-line with them is so much fun.
This ghetto that I live in-
Is a manufactured environment that isolates me from my community and the Sun
.
I don’t know about you?
I for one, will stick with the possibilities of real life
and live in my real-life ghetto that I’ve been sold.

–Adapted from Rochelle’s thoughts 😮


Until the next time – I adore you for reading my blog,
