My horoscope said to turn off email, facebook, etc.
I go to my dance class and people rush to their phones for water breaks. I go to a restaurant, everybody is on their phones. I stand in line at the grocery and the person in front of me is on the phone while the checkout lady looks on.
Come on folks, take a breath. Hang up the phone, nothing is so important that you must read it this second.
The time worn phrase, “what did our mothers do?” is so apropos. Shoot, what did we do?
Speak to the people around you, please no phones when you are talking to your loved ones, please no reading the computer screen when you are on the phone with your friends or loved ones. We can tell when you are.
You will be amazed how nice the people around you are. How much a little connection to a real warm breathing person can mean. Smile.
I was just doing some sketches of two people I have never met. Studying their faces was fascinating. How much eyes, noses and mouths speak without saying a word. On a cellphone you will never be able to hear it.
