Blather Matters

 

Where we now and then prattle about things striking our fancy.

For most of my life, I've been sort of an amateur futurist. Peering over the horizon to see if anything was out to "git me". Or, to see what wonderous new thing is about to change my life. At age 82, "many" things have.

 

Sitting here in the now watching the seasons go by (the above really is the view from our backyard deck), I'll be drop-kicking morsels of thoughts between the goal posts of reality below. (Oh, I so love mixing metaphors. Drives English professors stark staring bonkers. They will live.)

HOO-boy, GET READY for one hell of a ride.

Along the way Envy-devils will be popping up where you least expect them. Visit our new introduction to ENVY to get acquainted.

This morning I watched CBS Sunday Morning Show and marveled how close over the horizon VR really is for laying waste to your sense of equilibrium.

Just see how long it's going to take you to realize you're about to be pancaked to the floor into a quivering "Don't Taze Me Bro" frame of mind.

For some time I've thought FutureBook Projects (FBP) would end up as content published on VR, AR and eventually hologram devices. All acces...
