As we make our way through the second half of January 2013, and with the public Presidential Oath of Office about to take place, we find ourselves wondering if this will be the year that we finally fix the things that need to be fixed, and leave those that don’t well enough alone. We also find ourselves wondering if, somehow, things have just become too complicated when it comes to daily life on the planet.
There are those of us who remember when it wasn’t like this, when we would finish a good day’s work, go home to our families, to a nice sit down dinner during which we’d sometimes discuss the day’s events and finally relax a bit before we got into bed and had a good night’s sleep. Anyone remember the days of 8 hours of solid sleep? Things weren’t quite as stressful then, although we did have our issues now and then.
Today, about two thirds of us are hooked into the current electronic lifestyle, while the rest of us are either running to catch up or refusing to jump on the internet bus. But, despite all this, there are those of us who recognize that social media websites and emails can never really replace communicating with someone face to face, in person, to get the full benefit of the human experience. Some of us find ourselves walking over to talk to people, rather than sending an email to someone who is 10 steps away from us. Many of us are beginning to feel the absence of the human connection, and we are beginning to start seeking each other out in person more often. We are realizing that, somehow, a webcam chat is just not the same.
So remember that behind every article or email you read, every phone call you make, there is a living, breathing human being, with emotions and feelings, and the need for human contact.
