I admit I am possessed by the desire for an iPhone. Verizon finally gets it and I am waiting for an income check from a project that WAS to arrive at the end of January. It didn't so I missed the "pre-ordering" of the iPhone. I am possessed enough that my son asked if I could go just 12 hours without mentioning the iPhone - I can't. I am truly sad.
But the blessing of waiting is that I'm reading about what MIGHT be in the iPhone 5 that MIGHT come out by June. Since the check with which I plan to buy this phone, has yet to arrive, I am thinking of waiting for the next iteration. The question is, after all this waiting and longing, can I wait 4 MORE MONTHS?
I'm sure there is a theological lesson in here. And if I could get off the mac rumor-news websites long enough, I might just discover a contemplative revelation. Or maybe it is just the way of the world and technology. We are programed to wait and long for the newest and next thing. - at least I am.
So here I sit on my morning off. Reading, longing, imagining and grateful to have the morning to enjoy. "Enjoy" - am I? or is this all craziness?
