Aliens walk among us! Really!
I know this for a fact: because I am one.
I am not from a different planet or galaxy; but have traveled from a different time.
Somehow I have made this trip into a future that I am not completely comfortable with and do not fit in.
In my world as a youth, telephone calls were made with an operator assistance. We did not have a TV until I was seventeen. Personal computers did not exist during most of my life. People read books and talked to each other; they wrote lengthy letters to keep in touch with people far away. There was no fast food when I was raised so most people ate at home around a table. My world was slower and less hurried.
I have time traveled and adapted - until recently. Now I have passed a time travel point where I refused to continue: I will remain as I am while the world moves on to some bizarre conclusion. I do not carry a cell phone – I refuse to be controlled by electronic objects. I will read actual books, I will take slow walks and appreciate nature. I have unplugged from society and the travelers still advancing into the future.
The travelers, the young people of today are as foreign to me as people of another planet. I do not speak their language; I am not interested in their entertainment’s; I do not care to be involved with them, nor they with me; we have nothing in common, and I am good with that.
There are times I would travel back to if that were possible; but as it is not - I will remain in this time for the time I have left.
