is changing the relationships we have, or don't, or want to or wish we might
and all variations thereof.
So, remember, (for those of us above 15 reading this
), how when you fell in love with somebody, started to date or just were becoming friends and how you would call them when you could, after work, or school, at work, at home wherever there was a phone
attached to a line, yes those days
, well, there was some yearning involved and anticipation.
Now, there is no delay in contact, no time in between. There is the texting all night, all day, all nice
. There is little opportunity to let
thoughts linger, or be misinterpreted or even to settle in. I'm not saying things are moving faster, because time
hasn't changed, but what has is the notion of access
and any sort of limitation.
It's an evolution of sorts, just like any form of telecommunication
or language. It's all so immediate, with no softness or cushion
, just all here and now.
