The movie Frequency is a beautiful celebration of our humanity, a movie in which a ham radio set connects a son with his father across 30 years, allowing the son to hear the voice of a father he barely remembers.

Like a movie critic pointing out inconsistencies in the plot, I rudely reject the idea that the devices I am text messaging with today will be functioning ten years from now. Technology is simply moving too fast.

Turning away from the technological challenges, I find myself examining the relationship of now-me and future-me, asking the question, Will the things I am doing today be something of value in 10 years?

If not, what needs to change?

10 Year Text by Tia Singh
Speak what you think now in hard words, and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said today. – Ralph Waldo Emerson  Imagine your future self, ie, you 10 years from now. If he/she were to send you a tweet or a text message, 1) what would it say and 2) how would that transform your life or change something you’re doing, thinking, believing or saying today? TS
