The other side of modernity

I’ve had a few “Blade Runner” moments. Times Square at midnight in summer. Listening to Japanese radio while standing on a hotel balcony overlooking downtown Honolulu. Walking from building to building across interconnecting  enclosed pedestrian bridges in Hong Kong. The marvel of the Las Vegas strip.

In those moments, I felt like I was looking into the future. But it was the present. And the reality is those experiences are now part of my past.

The cliche is true. The future is now.
