A sign of the times. A life in transition, different but the same. Separate means to the same end. From the press to the electronic press, to augmented smartphone reality, to whatever event or story or game one may access and experience collectively in an individual fashion.

Next stop: e-visors. Maybe e-suits.
And hats. Please bring back the hats.
From the bays of Pearl Coast,
Fish a ton of oysters, find a shiny Pokemon, a bit of information, a juicy tidbit.
PS – Individualism is a quality understood and expressed collectively. Ouch, but yeah.
