Need I say more? This is what the world has come to. The reality is that most people today are just not comfortable separating themselves from their smartphones. They want to stay in constant touch with everyone important to them. Can’t say I disagree.
This year Eliot and I spent Thanksgiving with my west coast family. Cousins Beth, Jeff, and Hanna Young hosted the most magnificent combo Chanukah and Thanksgiving lunch and dinner today including latkes and turkey. We can’t thank them enough. The entire family showed up. It was just a very happy and satisfying day.
Thanks to smartphones, our daughter and friends were in touch with us all day via text, email, cell, and Skype. So while it may not be polite to take calls at the dinner table, we were able to check our messages during breaks. It just made separation from love ones during the holidays a little easier.
Peace to all! Thank you Beth, Jeff, and Hanna.
