Naples, Florida is practically an international city. You can hear a variety of languages spoken. It is affluent and beautiful. There are so many lovely sights including “cottages” that are reminiscent of old Florida, and we will post a few images of those.
And there is wonderful people watching, car watching, art, architecture, and great shops.
If you talk to people there you can find out all sorts of fascinating information. For example Eileen was conversing with a sales lady in the Tommy Bahama men’s shop about women’s clothing.
She said that there is a solution to finding the perfect fit in a pair of jeans for women. It seems that women have a variety of challenges in that department. To me, those “challenges” just enhance girl watching for men. But what do we know?
She gave us directions to a shop that will measure your every curve and create the perfect jeans specifically for you. We didn’t go, but I know that we will eventually be visiting that spot in Estero.—-a report to follow.
So, getting to our photograph, we have this couple who are staring at their phones instead of each other. It is said that there might be health issues from excessive use of cell phones including brain injury from radiation; tendon problems and inflammation (involving neck, elbow and hands;) computer vision syndrome (dry eye, blurry vision, dizziness;) addiction to the devices (anxiety if you don’t check them often); sensory deprivation (as in experiencing your environment;) and , in this case, damage to relationships.
We will try to develop a collection of photos regarding selfies and cell phone addiction.
PRESERVATION HALL JAZZ BAND with AMY LAVERE:
WBGO JAZZ RADIO (regarding this recording session): “But Amy LaVere was there to sing the enticing “Baby Won’t You Please Come Home” into a vintage-style ribbon microphone, albeit one that was wreaking havoc for the sound technicians. Her auburn-accented hair sailed into the breeze, and she handled an equally flowing delivery.”
