Little Boxes on the Hillside

I have your attention.

What do you hear around you?
The whir of the laptop. Cars passing. Crickets?
What's just beyond this screen?
Look around you.
Now, Google Earth in your mind.
Go out and out and out...
There is plenty which you haven't seen 
Or didn't even know
Was there.

Listen and see.
Play with that.
And if you notice you cant hear the background noise
Or see the color of the car ahead of you
All you have to do is say...

Now you have your attention.

I really like this! It's gripping. The whirr of the laptop is always there and was such a wake up call when I read those words that pointed to my experience beyond the information on the bright screen before me.
