Blur - Jets
Here, from Tolkien Journal Vol.III no. 1 (1967), comes a letter wishing J.R.R. Tolkien, “Happy Birthday.” The letter is by P.L. Travers, the author of Mary Poppins and the focus of the new film, Saving Mr. Banks, featuring Emma Thompson as Travers and Tom Hanks as Walt Disney. Even here, in a birthday greeting, she seems a trifle salty.
I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.
This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.
