They say when you get older you hear your mother’s voice coming out.

It’s true. I hear hers and a battle cry of others as well.

The others are people my age looking at today’s youth. Sure, every generation is appalled by the latest hip shaking moves. The drugs, the rock n’ roll. But honestly, there are bar raisers here today kids. I think it would be hard pressed to look back and think my parent’s parents had anything to worry about.

Why couldn’t we have stayed in the Dick and Jane land. Why can’t we slow things down. Because life moves forward, and technology follows.

See Dick and Jane make life seem so easy. They looked. They saw. They had it so good.

In the mind numbing tales they told of running and playing Dick and Jane were at least responsible.

Today’s Dick and Jane story would read so different.


Angila has been writing since 1979 when she received her first diary, filling it with boy crazy nonsense and girly drama. It wasn't until the 21st century that she discovered writing was a healing tool to release inner chaos. When Facebook was invented Angila, who is an attention whore reveled in receiving likes and shares. Comments started pouring in that she should write a book. Knowing her lack of follow through and commitment issues, Angila ignored the advice and chose to blog. Detached From Logic is where she currently vomits her creative juices and allows the voices in her head a digital soap box. Her life long dream of having fans came when wordpress announced she had one follower. Unlike the stalkers in her life this one felt acceptable and welcomed.
