The art of conversation is dying....

Is this a date?  Or are they just sharing a table? (courtesy Bing images)

Yeah, no kidding....



First of all, I want to state that I do text.  Sometimes.  When I really need to.  Like "I'm on my way home"  or  "Could you pick up milk on your way home?".   The only people I have "text conversations" with is my oldest, who receives so many phone calls (business) that he rarely answers the phone.  BUT, even in this case, it annoys.  Why don't people want to talk to each other anymore?  

I would say that texting is distancing us from each other.  Look at the photos above ~ great examples. I see this everywhere I go ~ in class, on campus, at work, shopping.  Like the photo above, they aren't even looking at each other.  Are they on a double date?  Waiting for the bus?  

Looks like the art of conversation is dead.....

Be a rebel ~ call someone you love today & just have a chat......

Love, 365
