Saturday evening my family and I went for a walk to the Capitol here in Bismarck and I was amazed at how many people were walking along eyes glued to their phones playing this Pokémon game. When the game first came out I told people it sounds very much like Geocaching. It actually is only you are searching for electronic pictures.
I am personally torn about how I feel towards this game. On one hand, people of all ages are getting outside and getting exercise and fresh air. On the other, it is a bit eerie how people are almost in a trance participating in this phenomenon.
I don’t know if I will be a part of this adventure or not. I do know I don’t want another activity introduced into my life so I will likely sit out this fad. I am trying to eliminate things out of my life and focus on the simple pleasures. My mind gets too burdened if my life is too full of activity. Live in serenity my friend. ~b
