Fortune Cookie Hall of Fame: A Phoneless Cord
|The Phoneless Cord|
“For people who like peace and quiet: a phoneless cord.”
I particularly like this fortune; although on the surface this little bit may seem humorous, there is also truth in it.
There is something to be said for phonelessness, but yet maintaining a gentle and strong cord connecting us to the people we love.
Too often, we are together in the same room but are still apart as we become engrossed in our cell phones, iPads, Kindles, computers, and other technology.
We are bound to our technology, often slaves to it –
– Guilty as charged.
Perhaps we should spend more time together – I have found that playing board games is a great way to connect with those we love, as long as we do not take the game itself too seriously.
