Sometimes I think it’s really hard with all of our technology to have real heart to hearts.  Emojicons have taken the place of a friendly hug or  supportive pat on the back.  Instead we click the thumbs up button to show support, emotion and empathy.  I long for days when having a pot of coffee on in the morning was standard practice just knowing that someone was going to drop by for a chat, and a cup.  Sometimes there would be tears either from laughter or hurts, usually hugs all around and a “call me if you need me.”  It was always heartfelt.  How did I know? Because I could see the non-verbal communication and hear the tone in the verbal communication.  It’s really hard to get that from an emojicon, know what I mean?

We have gotten so use to all of this wonderful technology I’m wondering if we are forgetting the fine art of conversation.  Are we writing what we really meant to say or are we just clicking the buttons.  Am I being short, curt, surly in my responses in order to save time?  Or am I engaged in what’s being presented to me.  Am I being the person I want to be whether in a little box called a cell phone or in the newsfeed section of face book.  Technology used in the right hands is a wonderful tool, just like in person.  However, the opposite is also true.  So maybe this can just be a reminder for all of us that the person on the other end of that click/send button is a person…with feelings not a emojicon.  A reminder to take one second to be kind.  P.S. if anyone wants to meet for coffee I have Friday mornings open?  Message me with an emojicon, you know the ones I like.
