A scenic byway is a specially designated road that travels through an area of natural or cultural beauty. You can drive on through your life as fast as you can, more focused on the destination than the journey. Or you can choose to be present and revel in the journey that is life. I choose the latter. Eyes wide open and marveling at the beauty that is everywhere all the time - this is My Scenic Byway.

I've drunk the kool-aid...
Guess who got an iPad yesterday? I need one for the road. I am on my way to DC for work so decided to take the plunge. When I was flying to Kenya and in that region and everyone had an iPad...I knew it was time. I can't be that far behind in the tech curve. I used to be a hardcore first adopter, now I've mellowed out. I really wanted this because I wanted an I-reader and when I saw how fancy the Kindle Fire is getting I decided why not just get an iPad...like everyone else. It will be most useful during our many many roadtrips (in case you haven't noticed, we are always driving somewhere...thus the scenic byway...road tripping is deep in our lives these days and I dont see that stopping). We are always lookimg up hotels, restaurants and sites on our drives. The phone is too small. My computer plus the Internet device gets complicated. This is beautifully simple. So is it wrong that I now travel around with a dell work laptop, an apple computer, two iPhones ( one personal and one work) and now an iPad? All in my carry on. I am like a walking apple ad and a symbol of the times. Maybe I should go buy the Steve Jobs bio on iBooks....
