Celebrate this Week : March 25, 2017.
Slice of Life March Challenge. No. 25.

Today, I celebrate technology in communications that

  • Spans miles, putting two people who are in two different places into the same space
  • Blends time zones, making now the time, anytime for everyone

It is how I live, reflected by this journal entry I wrote a couple years ago.

Alone, but not alone!

I am . . .
Talking with my husband who’s in Oregon.
Texting with my son who’s wide awake at 3 AM in a hotel in Bulgaria.
Reading a work contract that was scanned and emailed to me this afternoon.
Looking at pictures just posted of my grandkids who are in Ecuador and Oregon.
Catching up on “friend news” via Facebook (just reconnect with some HS and college friends).
All this while I sit alone at a table, enjoying a plate of enchiladas at Carlos & Mickey’s in El Paso.

What a time to live!!

Who would have dreamed of this when I was young, when I stood beside the pay phone in my college dorm hallway at 7 AM each Saturday waiting for my weekly call from my fiancé who was in the Navy. And now, I cannot imagine returning to the snail mail and land lines for our only connections.

You really must come on over and celebrate at Discover Play Build with Ruth Ayres and others who have linked in to share their celebrations this week.

Thank you, Ruth, for hosting a place for us to celebrate with you!  #Celebratelu
