While watching Boardwalk on HBO last night, one of the main characters travelling in Ireland received a telegram that he should return home immediately, due to the illness of his child (well not really his child, but you don't want me to go into all that detail). At that same time, my daughter sent me a text that said "call me if you're not in bed yet".
It occurred to me while technology has certainly come leaps and bounds from the age of the telegram, our use of text and twitter is not really any different.
Important news and message communicated thru short bursts of information.
I'm all for ways to communicate, but some of the best nights I have are relaxing on the porch or in front of the fireplace just talking with Mr. B sans phones, laptops or technology.
Hope your week is off to a great start!
