We worked so hard to create the postal system, the telegraph, radios, TV, phones, fax machines, the internet, email, text, social media…because human beings so desperately want to connect.
Now that we have broken the barrier to connect, we are exhausted from reading how the world needs to be fixed. It continues to be the source of so much of our sadness when we spend too much time “connected.”
We don’t want a connection with everybody. We are looking to connect with somebody. Something authentic and real not manufactured with an algorithm. No one seems to get tired when someone writes a letter or stops by our house to see how we are doing. What’s the problem then?
