 Think on This:

The things we consistently, habitually, consciously or unconsciously hold in our thoughts and feelings become our lives. This applies individually as well as collectively. They become our lives and the world we live in.

As You Read This:

As I was driving down to see my son on Long Island this week, I was listening to NPR (National Public Radio) They had a story about videos that have captured our children's attention. The study revealed that children, adults and even babies are mesmerized by a new video genre which is called "unboxing." In the videos, adults or children unbox new items.

The items may be technology or toys. They serve no purpose. Both adults and children have the same response. One commentator said that the viewers were most fascinated by the hands. 

Saturday morning, as I was folding laundry in the living room, and my son and grandson were downstairs cleaning the basement, I heard a familiar sound. It was a song, that I'd be willing to bet you know the lyrics to, even if you haven't heard it in decades.

The lyrics, "I'm just a bill, I'm only a bill...and I'm ______. They were watching a video I had found and sent to him a while back, from...you already know..."Schoolhouse Rock." Here's another lyric for you: "Three...it's a __________. Know that one too? Most likely.

Well, not only was my son enjoying the trip down memory lane, but my seven year old grandson was mesmerized. Good stuff never gets old! Helpful stuff. Stuff that helps us learn and grow.

Oh...and fascination with the hands...what if they were to put their own hands to work...with clay or writing, or coloring, or cleaning their room, or building...

If you're not "seeing" things differently yet, here is one more thing...I'd say the 'kicker,' is that the woman who designed and produced this genre is making millions on it! The youtube videos are "monetized," so every time someone watches one, they also watch a commercial and she gets paid!

So, considering the opening statement, and the video experience I shared...where do YOU think we are going? What ARE we thinking?
