Ah, how the times change. I wrote my first book on a manual Smith & Corona typewriter. When the personal computer first came out in the late 1980s, I bought one and gradually that become my word processing system. I was late in embracing social media. In fact, I just become a member of Facebook. Daunting to say the least. Daily I am amazed to see the varied interests, inspiring photos, and seemingly unlimited way the younger generation engages and plunges into and experiences life. I love being able to see it in almost real time. At the same time, it is intimidating and overwhelming because of the amount of items and activity available. It has affected my writing. Specifically, I am finishing up a new book about baby boomers (those of us born between 1946 and 1964). There are approximately 80 million of us in the US. As I reflect and write the story it is almost incomprehensible to me how technology and culture have changed and changed us. I went through a period of mild cynicism about the future of people, our nation, and our world. Yet, the more I am exposed to things like Facebook, I find myself becoming optimistic again. The generations who followed the baby boomers are smart, unafraid, irreverent, funny, and have a zest for life that bodes well for us as people. It is refreshing. As I indulge in some nostalgia and seek new adventures and experiences, I will start sharing them here on this blog.
