Terminal Time

The daily writing prompt from the daily post at http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/terminal-time/ asks:

You’re at the airport, your flight is delayed for six more hours, and none of your electronic devices is working. How do you pass the time?

I’m fortunate in that I was born long before the invention of the electronic age.  While today’s youth needs an iPhone, laptop, ipod, whatever in their hands to remain occupied I have cultivated my imagination.  Although I consider myself a member of this electronic age I am not defined nor limited by it.  So if my flight were delayed I’d pull out a sketchbook and doodle.

Before I decided to limit my artistic pursuits to Photography I always carried a sketchbook, pencil and mini watercolor palette.  I don’t carry the colors with me anymore but I still have everything necessary to occupy my time.  How often in today’s world do you see a child sitting like this…unplugged from anything but her imagination.  In this photo from the 50s you can see that even then I didn’t need anyone to entertain me.  So perhaps we should unplug ourselves or our children more often.  Being tied to electronics limits our imagination and our interaction with the world without and within.

Although I am not participating in this week’s TT I still want to link up to Kim Klassen. She, more than anyone has helped me regain my focus on my true creative outlet…Photography.
