Live life.

The best, gentlest, funnest, sharpest, simplest take I’ve seen on multi-tasking yet.

Or, instagram/photo/video yourself living a life that’s slightly easier and more fun than what’s left unphotoed…and in so doing, miss out on the good parts, too.

A college friend of mine calls it the “Zombie Apocalypse“—we’re all walking around staring at screens instead of living life, looking at the sky, allowing moments of gap, allowing joy.

Great video:

    This video is sad in it's truth, I went out to eat the other night at a fairly nice restaurant and witnessed a mother and her teenage daughter at the table across from me. They sat down and immediately pulled out their respective cell phones and proceeded to talk to or text other people for the whole ENTIRE meal. I saw them speak to each other once, for 10 seconds. The rest was spent with their heads down or with the phone to their ear. I was horribly saddened. A perfect opportunity for some quality connection, completely missed. I have pledged to only be on my phone when absolutely necessary, especially when with my kids or my significant other. I do not want to miss them and miss life's moments.
