Sitting under a tree, T-A-L-K-I-N-G. Sometimes with all the noise around us, the pressure at work and the speed that technology provides us we forget to take time to just sit down with a friend or someone special and just talk. I remember the line in a song, “can we just stop and talk for a while” which for most of us is a luxury.
Although technology provided us with several means of communication and with the advent of high speed internet connections we can even make video calls across great distances. In my opinion nothing trumps the old way of conversing, talking face-to-face with another person. Sometimes when we do it by other means, thoughts and meaning gets lost in translation so to speak.
So when was the last time you had a meaningful, face-to-face personal conversation?
