Real Life - Plug in and Plug out

Miss Doodle likes to watch people in the Metro. A lot of them wear in-ear headphones now and listen to music or speak on the phone while they seem oblivious of everything else that is going on around them.

Same thing you see here on the bus,in taxi, on the streets, in the subway; and even last term one of my students had it on in the class! To show off as she later confessed!!! :D
Yes! They seem plugged out of life!

Ah, we are so global! That is like riding the Metro here, as well (Washington, DC area calls the commuter train system the Metro, too).

I love this sketch, though! You have an incredible way of seeing the world, Miss Doodle...and bring us all together that way. You secretary has the greatest hand to share your days! The two of you are a wonderful team!

Oh Miss Doodle it IS a world tuned inward.. No one can go anywhere with out being plugged in and tuned out. Ipods, cell Phones, when do they THINK and DREAM?

Ah Miss Doodle. I wonder if the next generation will be born with bent elbows and a cell phone attatched to their ear. I love it that all the people in Miss Doodle's world (almost all) are tall and thin like Miss D. I love those balloons in the sidebar. Hurrah, for Miss Doodle.

Hello Miss Doodle, I have just discovered you through Emmy's blog (Cramzy) and I must confess that you have stolen my heart.I love the way you see the world - thanks for sharing.

These are great little drawings--they capture the mood and the separation so perfectly! We are losing our humanity when we can not relate directly. Of course, those of us communicating through blogs and emails.....are also connecting through an abstract, distant means, aren't we???? Funny how the intimacy and the polar distance are getting a bit mixed up in the world today....
