As life in general seems to be getting faster and faster, do we have time to find the meaning? As we become more dependent on technology, we expect faster results. We don’t have time to wait for a song to download or for the commercial to finish. Things have to happen now. How frustrated do you get when you feel like you’re waiting too long at the drive thru? How often do we stop and think that there actually are people in there trying to do their jobs while our car unnecessarily burns off more fuel?
As we become more connected through technology, do we become more isolated as individuals? I see people glued to their cel phones, texting one of their friends instead of actually saying hi to the person in front of them. Things are not likely to change. There was a time when you actually had to get up to change the TV channel. There was a time when there was no TV. How different were we back then? For now, can we at least hold the remote together? Maybe that way we feel a connection.
