Are You Connected or Disconnected?

October 18, 2014

Great little video about the disconnectedness and friendlessness of our quasi-connected world. We can have “friends” all around the world, but do we have any that we can share a real hug with, not just a {{{hug}}}? Certainly we use our phones for voice conversation, from time to time, but usually it’s just a beep or a cricket or a guitar strum that we hear, and then our thumbs go to work being social. I have heard some say that the dead space of real conversation is unsettling. Really? Why do some think that that is uncomfortable? It’s almost as if we need relationship teachers these days, teaching us the lost art of true friendship. Be with real people more than you’re with your phone.
