Sharing pictures in a photograph album is an altogether cosier experience than directing someone to pictures in Picasa, Flickr, or even Facebook. (Perhaps I will feel differently if we ever become an iPad family.)
I miss letters and notes on nice stationery. No one will ever be able to tie up emails and text messages with a ribbon and save them in a chocolate box.
Long play stereo records sounded amazing and looked great. We owned this album and may have bought simply because of the ultra cool cover. (What would all those graphic artists be doing today, I wonder? Probably working for the video game industry.)
|I loved this cover, but was disappointed to learn that she is covered with shaving cream.|
I can’t believe that I’ve only come up with three things. What else should I be pining for?
Maybe I’m more adaptable than I imagine. Just as well since growing older seems be all about adapting in one way or the other.
