Thursday Thoughts


Why is it that we sit with our heads down looking at our smart phones, updating our status on various Social Media platforms, informing complete strangers or barely known acquaintances about the fun time we are having at xyz with abc, instead of actually communicating and having said fun with abc at xyz. This is where I don't really embrace the advancement of technology, but I am just as guilty as the next person. Technology has turned us into rude bad mannered people who cannot conduct a conversation unless it is typed onto an electronic device. Last week when we were at the Bee Gee Tribute Show, whilst we were waiting for the show to start, I looked around at the incredibly quiet Showbar - and at every table, barring the one directly to the left of ours, everyone had their heads down typing furiously on their smart phones updating their statuses about the fun they are having - by the serious looks of concentration on their faces it did not look like they were having fun.

Mark forgot his phone at home (and was lost without it) otherwise we would have looked just like everyone else. I have been giving it a lot of thought since my eyes scanned that almost grim faced quiet room full of people updating their fun statuses and what a coincidence it was to find the above image whilst going through my Good Morning Nubia Emails. We need to switch off those electronic devises and start having meaningful conversations with each other, like we did prior to the advent of smart phones and electronic devises. The days when rooms were filled with the buzz of laughter and chattering voices and not the tic tic of fingers on keyboards.
