My problems have all gone

Oh the minutia hear it roar;
What is with the minute by minute narrative in every venue. Walking through the store and telling the person on the other end of the phone exactly what you are looking at. Ditto for looking at things on the shelves in the library; Facebook posts about what you had for breakfast. Blogging about the minute by minute exchange you have with your mom; wait a minute that's me.
So, yes, I acknowledge it's all of us who have logged on to some technology and taken advantage of the outlets, possibilities for sharing and wanting to look like we have an important bit of work that must be texted as we walk or sit alone for thirty seconds lest someone thing we are idle or unimportant.
It's essential to have venues for our thoughts and creations, however there needn't be self importance attached to all of these expressions because with that comes absolutely no discovery, except mostly of what we already knew.
