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.

The Ol’Buzzard


  1. I caved and got a cell phone for the first time 3 years ago. But I'm still a contrarian in my own way -- I got a flip phone, not a smart phone. Everyone laughs at me. But phuckem all -- they pay a fortune for their monthly phone/data packages and I don't.

  2. I couldn't have said it better myself. All the same, I often do feel sorry for the young.

  3. being young today? no fucking way.


COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
