The history of the Apple Logo is fascinating.
But you might ask what does it have to do with The Hubbell Pew, other than each day’s post is composed on an iMac.
I read recently that our’s is the first generation where many workers work 24/7 courtesy of iPhones and other time-saving devices. The author argues that Adam and Eve as soon as they took a bite out of the apple the balance in our life was thrown out of whack, and what more symbolizes that fact than the Apple Logo.
I was pleased to read that the Apple logo has nothing to do with Adam and Eve. In fact, the first Apple logo was a depiction of Sir Issac Newton.
But I would say that cell phones have become a modern day equivalent of slavery and chains. Have you not wondered why people have their cell phones turned on or vibrate during movies, concerts, lectures and even church services. Which brings me to a suggestion, make it a routine to turn off one’s phone for part of your day. Meditation, prayer, and silence restore balance to one’s day. And don’t worry, when you turn the phone back on the Apple Logo will always reappear.
Balance is hard to achieve, but worth the effort, especially the second it takes to turn off one’s phone every now and then.
