It’s weird how willingly we descend into this electronic world. There is nothing to touch, no expression to read, nothing; it is virtual, nothing more. Our letters are electronic, our messages and pictures, everything “press send”. It seems to make sense, efficient and direct, good for the environment. However the thing that is lost appears to be the thing that got us out of the muck to start with: our self-awareness, our knowledge of the world in which we live.
I saw someone yesterday who has been most hostile toward me over the years and expressed that same hostility yet again…but then, suddenly, smiling, said, “I like your blog.” I was confounded by that. I could think of nothing to say but “Thanks” and have been left scratching my head ever since. And so I blog about that.
