I've been out of touch with the world lately. I must admit I enjoyed the silence. It was quite soothing.
I'm sick of communication being so instant. Boy, I do sound sour! Honestly though, instant gratification is a bit sickening. People can't hold off and put things to the side anymore. We all need to have our cell phones with e-mail, voicemail, text, a million games, songs and applications right in our pocket. They say you can have your entire life in one small, technological miracle. I say, the more technological miracles you own the less life you actually live. It's pointless noise carried on by restless bodies who claim they are in constant need of rest they never truly seek. I'm amazed at how blind they are. Throw that phone in the river, take a breath and look at the beauty that surrounds you!
I miss the days where people actually had to wait to get in touch with me. Hell, I even miss those rotary phones! Now it seems I feel obligated to answer the phone when it rings because the phone resides wherever I go. It's annoying. To top that off, I'll get a phone call, 4 e-mails and 2 text messages at once.
I guess I just don't believe the that technology brings people together. If anything it creates more distance. Instead of calling, just e-mail. Instead of e-mail, text 2 words. Instead of texting, just Facebook "happy birthday." It's sad.
I feel like a granny. I wish I had a cane to swivel about.
