The Game Continues

A new day is switched on: the hibernation  mode is interrupted,  images re-appear, white LED sparkles, and I am clicked to trek at Cerok Tokun again.


If correctly zooming in, Cicadas, big ants, millipedes, Asian Scorpions, mushrooms and more can be discovered. These items can be collected as  points scored or       extra lives earned. Someone can log out or shutdown at anytime, but the super server remains in operation. The journey continues.


Clicking on some places allows us to progress to a new level, though old and new may look very similar, and past and future are just a difference of a microsecond.


Once the machine is switched on, the rest will be handled by a simple right- or left- click, or a tap on any key, though "any" key cannot be found on the keyboard. I shall move on, but not Steve Jobs.


"On/off" switches are avoided in Apple products due to his concerns about afterlife, but he was clicked and was forever gone, from his last Windows scene. 

The game has to continue.

I like the way you combined technology with nature in this post. They are my two favorite things. And the pictures are beautiful as always. The adventure game continues.

Interesting post and I always love your photos. The last shadow shot and reference to Steve Jobs is great. What would we do without our computers and iphones. But maybe spend more time enjoying nature. Have a great weekend!

Let the game continues! Your perspective on life always amaze me, and sometimes I found myself carrying your point of view..Strange!!!

Yes, old and new levels may look similar but they are very different, we have more to see and learn...

I like the 'switching on' of a new day--exactly as frequently
it happens--as I frequently observe during that space between night and day.
PEACE!

What beautiful photos of nature!
I especially love the first one, because I am always attracted by shining, sparkling things.

Your nature seems to be processing in the background as our lives continue on. Just hit the "Alt-Tab" keys to switch between them.

Yes, whether multibillionaire computer guru or lowly nurse like me, we all, pretty much, end up the same way when the final curtain is drawn.
