future developments: a limerick.

When I was younger, my family and I would talk
About what we thought the future might unlock
Sure, we’ve got lots of tiny tech
Digital music replaced the tape deck
But I still want to know… Where are the moving sidewalks?

Jetsons.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
