Thought for the day….” Never allow your mind to be a garden for negative thoughts. If you do, then you will only harvest tears”.
” Without bad days, who would know what a good one way?”
A sad story in the news today from London, UK. The police there have seized a Lamborghini Aventador (the latest model) worth USD 450 000 for having no insurance (!!) and may end up being crushed shortly. The car was seized near the famous Harrods department store in London, UK, and is owned by one of the Qatari ruling family. The same fate has also happened to Ferrari and Porsche cars previously, but it is thought that it will be the first Lamborghini that has been seized and scrapped in this way. I wonder why they do not try and sell it, instead of just crushing it???
I was watching passengers in a busy train/bus terminal recently and was struck by the huge number of people online, even when they were walking or waiting. This made me think that we are never properly ‘away’, as we are now always connected and receive almost instant news from friends even when we are thousands of km away. Previously (say 20 years ago) you got mail once every few months when you were travelling (how exciting to go to a main post office and collect a bundle of mail, which you read over and over again). Apart from those occasional letters, you were out of touch for months at a time, save for the occasional (expensive) telephone call. Now people are never really away, as there is almost always a constant connection to home. Even on aircraft now there is wifi, ships have sea have wifi via satellite and trains and buses now also have the connection. So we do not get ‘away’ anymore.
