Depressing, the button…

January 28, 2010

There they are, 372 unread items in my Google Reader.  35 of them specifically shared by people whose insights I’ve learned are worth attention, and all the authors brilliant, passionate people.  Waiting for me to pull up to a table with coffee and treats and enjoy them, a feast of science and technology and art and news and commentary on interesting stuff and just plain humor.  And thence probably to take that inspiration and enjoy writing posts for my own blog. 

But I have more than the usual number of projects going at work and home.  And since having to cut out painkillers, I’ve been managing chronic pain with daily exercise – certainly a good thing in every way but it is time consuming.

372 items.  I click the button that says; Mark All As Read.  There’s a sense of loss, like dropping new books in the trash…

    Someday.  Someday, they will come up with some little software application that reads text with the appropriate emphasis and a pleasant voice, so that we can “read” no matter what.

    In the mean time… delete.  And weep.

    Argh.
