Technology is genius…. And technology is a travesty…

I’m definitely showing my age with this one, but I’m allowed at least one rant.

I love so many of the amazing advantages and luxuries technology has brought into our lives. Take for instance this very blog you’re reading – in times past it may have been kept in a journal and never seen by anyone (maybe some of you would have appreciated that!). In times past, keeping up with my friends scattered around the world would have been much more difficult.

However, it has to be said that in technology we have lost so much of ourselves, of creating true relationships that have value, that required thought and effort. It is far too easy to allow the diversions of technology to think for us and to never dig any deeper than the effort to decide which channel to watch.
