Beep, tring, blink. My phone lately has started beating its heart way too much. Its constantly running, doing laps tirelessly, singing what sounds like a never ending opera. And I know the reason. Everyone I know and love is far away. Everyone for whom I want to make the effort of passing a cursory smile has packed up and gone. Technology connects, but it also makes me realise how I've left people behind or how they've moved on. Necessary evil. A thorn, prickling and painfully reminding me of things I've let go off. Come home, now. Everyone. Let's kick technology's pretentious ass someday, for a few hours, and let's connect souls and ideas. Face-to-face. Heart-to-heart. Brain-to-brain.
