Temperamental technology ruled childhood. Music was delivered on cassettes who's fragile tape could unspool, tangling, destroying your chance to listen to Betty Davis Eyes on repeat. If you were lucky you were given tools to rewind, others did it with fingernails jammed like philips-heads into the toggle to return the cassette to the start. Technology grew, fighting the storms of people against change. The CD was a revolution, more storage, more robust, more.

Thanks Leowriter. I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Is my object writing focusing on only internal thought? I'm not sure I know how to get out of that. If you have the time, I would really appreciate some examples of a different way to do it so I can see the box I keep putting my writing in and improve on it.

I really appreciate your comments! Thank you!
