no, really….

A spatial anomaly is a very broad term for any sort of extraordinary disruption in the space-time continuum. Often, they can take the form of irregularities in gravity, ripples in space that can damage equipment and personnel, alterations in the laws of physics, and areas of disruption inimical to the Human brain.

Is this a completely accurate description of this blog?  possible.  possibly not.

Then why is it being used?  I am an IT guy, who trends more toward being a luddite the longer he works in the field.  This is not to say I dislike change, progress, or technology.  It is partly fueled by a background in photography – which I see as a single moment frozen in time, temporarily captured, to record an instance to be shared.  And a desire to overcome the loss of personal connection technology seems engender.   Because sometimes we need to step back from our lives, to pause and remember why we do the things we do, and to realize that sometimes the newest way is not always the best way.

I work wood with hand tools, because working with your hands brings a connection to creating that is hard to find any other way.  I write with fountain pens  because I enjoy the rythym of thought that accompanies the flow of words,  the connection to the past, and find the process a thing of beauty.

I use technology where I deem it appropriate or useful, because I recognize that it is a tool, and not the solution.

Perhaps this sums it up best best….

“Fewer and fewer Americans possess objects that have a patina, old furniture, grandparents pots and pans / the used things, warm with generations of human touch, essential to a human landscape. Instead, we have our paper phantoms, transistorized landscapes. A featherweight portable museum.”
~ Susan Sontag

Certainly an anomaly…

Much like the content that will be posted here at various random intervals as the mood strikes, infrequently.
