I Used To Be A Human Being – Andrew Sullivan: New York Magazine
Believe it or not, I just got a cell phone. I’ve had different devices for a number of years now, however, this is my first full-fledged, internet accessing anywhere, portable computer.
I wanted to be available on the go if my sons’ school called. Although I do have a sense of relief knowing that I can be tracked down in an emergency, having gone from internet blackout to wired in 24/7 has definitely had an impact.
I used to routinely go long periods of time without checking my email, or look up directions in advance of venturing somewhere new, even go for a walk unattached for some peace and quiet.
Don’t get me wrong, having a cell phone does make life easier in many ways, however I think I mourn the days when I didn’t have it strapped to me at all hours of the day. Maybe you feel the same?
Our “Best Article of the Week” by Andrew Sullivan for New York Magazine eloquently brings into focus the ways in which our cell phones can inhibit the beneficial silence in our lives. We are connected by a continuous stream of information and data, both informative and distracting, keeping us in the know, but also taking us farther from the conversations in our head that are necessary for growth and understanding of the precious thing we call life.
I encourage you to take 10 minutes to read this excellent article and contemplate putting your phone down, take a walk, and embrace the silence in your life. It has much to say.
