..and, another gift from Brandon and those Humans of New York (www.humansofnewyork.com).
“With all the good it’s brought, technology is destroying our communication skills — especially the ability to listen. The older generation can still listen, but many of the youngsters can’t even look you in the eye while you speak. If they aren’t looking at their mobiles, they’re looking over your shoulder or glancing around the room.”
Brandon (I’m guessing): “Why is verbal communication more important than communication through a device?”
“Because there’s only so much you can learn from your Facebook friends.”
wow… what a fantastic life’s perspective.
this has absolutely nothing to do with Spike Jonze’s recent Oscar crafty movie, Her. in fact, its clearly, delightfully, and thankfully, the opposite…
I’m convinced this woman is channeling my Mom.
by the way, I do feel that the movie, HER, is clever, and possibly insightful. it’s just that the good woman above is all the more so. and, that’s why me must listen to her.
peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
