  1. Ain’t that the truth?! I often lament the mothers pushing strollers but ignoring the child and everything around them because they’re on their phones, the people sitting “together” in a coffeehouse or outdoors but all on their devices, the….well, you get the idea. Yes, I love my phone for its camera feature, but I have to actually look at life to see things worth photographing and if I’m “connected”, I’m all too often disconnected from the real world, what’s happening there, and what matters. Technology has given us many gains, but also many losses through lack of management.

  2. This made me smile! I think taking photos preserves my memories. I do feel fishing off a bridge is interesting, but by a lake or in the woods along a stream makes it feel more peaceful. Hugs, Robin

      2. I am glad you understood the impact upon my little girl self. Wishing others of my friends had had Dad’s who valued their daughters, they may have had more confidence as they made their way in the world.

  3. Thank you for the chuckle although it is so true that it is sad. Everywhere you go these days, almost every person has their head down swiping on their phone screen. No one talks, they just swipe. Or in this case, they are hoping for a photo to trend or go viral.
