Imagine going through life, a talented painter and designer, and this is what you’re remembered for. When I went to day camp in the mid 1960s, I recall those little plaid carriers with the strap. They always ripped and never kept the stuff cold very long.
I wonder which 25 years or half-century has seen the most technological progress. Was it 1850-1900? 1910-60? For all the change since I was born, I can’t really say anything spectacularly different has occurred. We had TV then, and we have it now. We now have phones that don’t tether us to a specific location, but they’re still, utlimately, phones. We have portable music that wasn’t available in our grandparents’ day, but is that really progress?
