EYES FORWARD PEOPLE

IN A WORLD FULL OF ELECTRONIC GAMES, INSTANT MESSENGERS AND E-MAIL, IT’S NO WONDER HANDWRITING HAS TURNED INTO A SQUIBBLY MESS.

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO WRITING YOUR FRIENDS AND MAILING IT OFF TO THEM. WHEN DID WE GET SO IMPATIENT THAT WE CAN’T TAKE THE TIME TO DO SOMETHING SO PERSONAL AS WRITING? I AM GUILTY OF IT MYSELF I HAVE TO ADMIT.

THERE ARE LOTS OF THINGS THAT WE USE TO DO THAT WE DON’T DO ANY MORE. THINGS LIKE DRIVING OVER TO OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY HOUSE TO VISIT THEM FOR A EVENING. I DON’T EVEN SEE PEOPLE SITTING OUT ON THEIR PORCHES WAVING ANYMORE EITHER. WHEN DID WE BECOME SO AFRAID OF OUR FELLOW MAN THAT WE DON’T EVEN SOCIALIZE ON A EYE TO EYE LEVEL OUT IN THE STREET.

THERE ARE OTHER THINGS THAT I HAVE COME TO MISS. I MISS THE DAYS OF RECORDS AND 8-TRACK TAPE PLAYERS. TO ME, MUSIC SOUNDED MORE ALIVE THEN. I ALSO MISS THE DAYS OF WATCHING THE REAL NEWS WHEN IT CAME ON. NOT JUST WHAT A BUNCH OF ACTORS TOLD YOU WHAT THEY THOUGHT YOU SHOULD THINK.

I COULD GO ON AND ON BUT I GUESS I’LL JUST SAY, SLOW DOWN PEOPLE. PUT YOUR PHONE DOWN AND TALK TO EACH OTHER. TAKE A MOMENT TODAY AT THE DINNER TABLE AND HAVE A REAL CONVERSATION WITH YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS EYE TO EYE BECAUSE MEMORIES ARE MADE OF THESE.
