Lets talk about how we communicate.

The days before technology were normal enjoyable days. People actually took time to do every minute things such as corresponding via letters. And now, the postman only brings junk mails.

I want my pre-technology or pre-social media days back.

Its all about trends and the hype period where it will eventually (or already?) die down. Twitter and Facebook may still reign the way we communicate these days, but I’m sure there’s something else working their magic and would appear out of no where, soon.

When human evolve, why not technology or the way we communicate?

I would still prefer letters over junk mails. Reading letter from a childhood friend while sipping cacao smoothie would make any day better!

Taking time to go out and smell some roses, sit down and practice my hideous-almost-forgotten handwriting skills. Gotta keep the magic of letter writing, alive 😀

Whats your current method of communication (aside from emails, of course!)?

Stunning photography as usual. I miss the magic of handwritten letters. They were timeless. Virtual communication can never match it’s essence.

I dislike trends/hypes too and also miss the days when I used to have penpals…

A delightful smoothie.

Ok, adding this to my smoothie repertoire right now. I know I say this every time but LOVE the styling!
I miss getting letters too but the trouble is that I am terrible at getting around to actually writing them!

I had a large glass of strawberry smoothie this morning too. This delicious smoothie is going to be the next morning drink 🙂

You’re so right, Kiran. The only time I use a pen is just when I get parcels and have to sign for the delivery man. That’s crazy, if you think that we were born with completely different habits.

Thanks for inspiring me with this smoothie. I made it as a snack today and I really enjoyed it.

love your photographs and those owls are adorable.
I dont enjoy getting junk in the mail but I must admit , I love technology. Its made it so much easier to keep in touch with folks that due to distance I otherwise couldnt or admittedly wouldnt. I just prefer not to let technology take over my life.
I could enjoy a quite moment with this smoothie…

I make a shake like this with a little bit of chilli powder. Sooo good! I actually still love my junk mail but I would prefer a nice letter 🙂

I love letters too… and I miss those days! Love that muffin pan (or whatever it is) you have under the smoothies. And this looks and sounds and I bet tastes good too!

I just ‘stumbled upon’ your blog and am so glad I did. This looks like a lovely and simple recipe. And I couldn’t agree more about wanting the pre-technology days back. Life would be simpler, wouldn’t it!
