Today was a gorgeous 74 degree day with a light breeze. The kids and I saw tons of people on our walk.
I also saw something that surprised me. Many of those people were talking on their cell phones completely ignoring the people they were with. Most which looked annoyed. Kids trying to talk to moms who aren’t listening. Wives walking besides husbands who are listening to someone else. Husbands being ignored by wives chatting on the phone. Friends walking together, but one of them is talking on the phone.
I know once in awhile an emergency or quick phone call comes in. But, this many?
It was sad to watch so much disconnection with technology that is supposed to connect people.
You’re so right! No one really seems to notice what is going on around them anymore. I’m making an effort all this month to notice things every day. It’s hard when we’re so not used to it.
I love this Summer – good for you. It’s tricky, but so worth it.
