Make time to connect

Wednesday, May 14, 2014



I remember when I was in my workaholic mode and focused on going thru the motions instead of connecting to the important simple pleasures that make life meaningful. I often wonder if all this technology adds another little layer between us and those we need to connect to. And having people more interested in texting than conversing face to face, is a little demeaning ...
I think we find ourselves thru how we connect to others,
but what do I know.

I've been wanting to watch 'MR HUBLOT' since it won the 2014 for Best Animated Short film...and I found it. it runs a little over 11 minutes and it is very sweet.
enjoy. Luv the mileage on Mr Hublot's forehead.

Enjoying some cantaloupe and strawberries that were on sale this week.
Having Tilapia and rice with oriental veggies for dinner.

    I don't text and I have dinner parties where I don't allow phones. Such an anachronism !

    The simple pleasures of our lives are what keep us grounded. If we loss the ability to enjoy them... then there's something very wrong.

  I often worry about how our youth only seem to be able to communicate through technology. Watch them carefully - they seem to have lost the art of eye contact when speaking to people!! Very scary.

    Obviously, technology is something that we can't slow down...It will be very interesting to see how the world will communicate in 10, 20, etc. years. There is something both scary and exciting about it, for me.

The food sounds delish!

    Yikes! Technology is intrusive and blocks us from physically communicating with each other. I find this very sad.

    I echo your sentiments about electronics and electronic communication. Seems to have diminished the importance of face-to-face interactions, sadly.

"BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AWARD"

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!

Again, Congratulations Beautiful!

HUGS

    Don't have a smart phone, and I have text turned off so I don't have to pay for it since I never use it. I am always amazed at how many people sit across from each other in restaurants texting, and never say a word.

    Yes, it is weird how much easier it is to connect online than in person. On line I can love so easily but it is not quite so easy with people in the neighborhood. Got to keep on trying. Thank God my dogs keep giving me a reason to go out. The short film was sweet. The others on that page looked good too but if it was in a different language I did not pursue it or if it was too long or looked sad. The weather is amazing right now and makes walking ever so nice.

    Despite the continuing ups and downs of temps, everything is starting to turn green in my neck of the woods and it is indeed a welcome sight. It's taken awhile to come around, but I think that Spring has finally sprung here and I luv it. Indeed great weather for just about anything, except my beloved swimming I guess LOL!

    I worry about what the future holds because I go to eat occasionally and watch couples sitting together silently woofing down food while they text to someone else. Certainly not my idea of true love, where you can't wait to be with that significant other and dote on their every word. These people are operating in parallel universes. Sometimes it's just one person and it can be the male just as often as the female. Who would have thought that progress would take us back to typing class. What next? The Pony Express?

Cool, gloomy, and rainy here. But everything is green!! Love it!

Supper sounds yummy!
