    So true. Thanks for the reminder. I remember a gathering of friends at my place where I asked them all to place their cell phones in a basket to be left by the door. Most looked at me like I had lost my mind. But I insisted. And we had a GREAT time with each other.

    And I’ll admit, I have to remind myself to put my phone on vibrate and in my purse when I am hanging out with friends. It is wonderful what we enjoy when we lift up for air.

    I just had a very similar experience while in San Diego over the holidays. I met up with a friend at a local coffee shop, when we walked in it was pretty quiet with most tables taken by people who were working on their computers. We sat down and started talking, but it felt awkward at first because besides some background music we were the only ones talking. I almost felt like I was interrupting. Next to our two top was a communal/family table with benches and it would probably fit 6 people. A woman sat there. It as soon as a two top further away from me and my friend opened up she moved away from us. When I left I couldn’t help but think that is was weird that coffee shops have become more like a library than a social meet up location.

    Thank you for this. We all need a reminder.

    Valid points!! I find myself craving a conversation these days where the other person isn’t staring at a device…
