Spins and Wins, Bumps and Jumps, Rides and Slides, Hicks and Pix, Slo-Mo and No-Mo, and Selfie-Sticks

Human beings...... "Nothing like us ever was..."

And the wind shifts
and the dust on a door sill shifts
and even the writing of the rat footprints
tells us nothing, nothing at all
about the greatest city, the greatest nation
where the strong men listened
and the women warbled: Nothing like us ever was.

-- Carl Sandburg: Four Preludes to Playthings of the Winds
