Modern technology. Sitting at the doctor's waiting for my appointment and forced to listen to the discussion between the nurse and a patient - the dangers of modern technology from a social perspective. And they do have a point - more and more people communicate via smart phones, Facebook, Whatsapp and other means. You sit at the restaurant and couples have their phones glued to their fingers, ignoring each other and barely exchanging some words.
How often do you have a heated argument like when did Matisse die? What does someone from your circle do immediately? Takes out his smart phone and googlws. What happened with your memory? With making assumptions? With not knowing but still having fun in the process of discussion?
Yes, people grow apart, they stop talking, they exchange likes and sms, maybe some comments on selfies. I miss the good old days (dah!) when we had books, magazines and radios but above all we had silence and not this constant background noise (with many ohhs and ahhs and brilliant and gorgeous).
What to do? Well I decided today that I will spend one werkend without my phones. Who wants to find me I will be out taking a walk!
