This is me and my sister Andrea in her kitchen in New Jersey, about 2 years ago.
We were joking around that day, I was talking about goofy stuff and making her laugh, probably because I had said something outrageous…. Andrea’s husband Jerry took the pic and it captured that specific moment perfectly.
It’s important that we connect with other people, every day, in a non-social media way.
I spent this morning interviewing applicants for an admin position within Balloon Distractions, I met a bunch of nice folks, and in the process had some lively discussions with a pretty diverse group of people. One applicant had been a detective in London, who knew?
Social media has it’s place and it’s utility, but let’s not substitute this for REAL human interaction.
This is one reason why I enjoy volunteering in local community events, it gets you out there meeting people and interacting with real human beings, not staring at a computer screen.
Commenting to a post on Facebook is nice, but sharing a laugh with someone in person is far more powerful.
Those are my thoughts for this afternoon….
