It is truly amazing to relive the days of old when friends gather in a relaxing atmosphere without the use or interruption of technology to share stories catching up with their lives. I was a participant in one of those gatherings and, I must confess, I did use one gadget of technology so I may share the event with you in pictures.
My previous blog has the background of this tea social. During the course of today’s event, I offered a toast to all who were gathered. As they raised their tea cups, I asked them to put aside all their technological gadgets and to make real time for communicating face to face with their friends. It is so easy talk quickly via text, Facebook, video chat, cell phone, twitter, etc. But there’s nothing like a real handshake or hug before and/or after a conversation among friends. (Can someone offer me advice on how to hug while wearing big hats?)
