Old vs New!

For Linda’s SoCs

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “new/old.” Use either or both of the words “new and old” any way you’d like. Bonus points for starting and ending with either one. Have fun!

Old traditions die as modernity takes over

Old technology fades as new ones erase their entity

Old structures demolished as sky scrapers change the landscape

Old healthy food habits replaced by new instant junk

Old sustainable living dislodged to the new concept of use and throw

Old repository of minimalistic approach to life conquered by the new materialistic culture

Why can’t we blend the best of the old and new to create balanced habitat?

  1. This is a very thoughtful examination of the human mentality. I always thought the blending of old and new is best. For instance, natural cures and modern medicine. I think both have a place. The future should always come with some part of the past.

    1. Exactly my point Ben. While new is good, it should complement the old and not completely discard it. Like in case of medicines you rightly said, the old has such a vast storehouse of natural cure. A balance between the two is the key!
