It’s hard for me to envisage anybody sitting around a DVD in five years let alone ten, sitting in your kitchen, having friends round for coffee just looking at a piece of plastic, holding it dearly and embracing all your wedding memories as you marvel over it’s slick round surface. Its a real warm feeling isn’t it !! I wonder if all the data is still intact or has a bug eaten it’s way through it. Did you back it up to a hard-drive ? As most likely suggested ! Anyway a DVD just glows of warmth like no other item you could wish for, your heart desires on a space saucer piece of plastic. Hold that thought, we’ll call it thought “One” …..
Consumables, can’t believe I spelt it right first time…..
Every couple of years I upgrade my phone, I love the brand and I like shinny things like most humans. After two years my phone is barely tolerable as I know there’s a new shinny one waiting for me at the end of my contract, and so this cycle continues. Moving on, my car is changed every few years again for a shiny new one, may not be new but’s it’s new to me. I like to visit the showroom and sit in the latest model and embrace the aroma of leather and the new car smell, its a great experience. Again this experience repeats throughout our lives, as it does with several other consumable products. Their all called consumable every last one of them.
Hold that thought “Two”…..
Through your lifetime there will be people and moments you will want to look back on and cherish. Pictures give a recall to memory and take you back to the moment, if one picture doesn’t do it seeing several will. Memories are not consumable, neither are pictures, everything happens in the moment, is captured in the moment and is recalled later when you view the picture. Clever stuff.. By the way is case you where wondering you can’t upgrade your pictures, see captured in the moment ! Getting back to the kitchen, you and your friends sitting around the table looking perilously at the dvd as it skips a few beats and whirrs like it’s about to make your laptop into a blender. Final thought, now your going to relax..
A walk in the countryside….
By now we’re pretty caffeinated your friends come round, there drawing large amounts fresh coffee bean aroma in as they enter the kitchen, expectations are high they’ve come to see your wedding album. With your wedding album on the table, perhaps still in the box, even the box has appeal. You take it out the box and immediately feel the premium leather and of course the weight is very apparent, its bound with the finest leather, the pages are binded and matted, sublime. Coffee’s going cold but that’s ok it’s a consumable..
This album is not a consumable this album is your life…….
