ODE TO MY IPHONE: random thoughts about our seeming obsession with our phones.

You remind me of a needy child, always following me around, attached to my hip, and begging for attention with your swooshes, beeps and bells.

I lay you down and try to leave you alone so I can let my ears and senses rest, but soon the pull on my heart and mind draw me back for more.  What’s happened while I was away?  Did you call out to me?

So I come back, all ready for more.  Maybe I’m the one who is needy – for the affirmation that there is someone out there who wants me to play, talk, and to connect.

**A happy and peaceful Thanksgiving.  Let’s unplug and connect in the good old fashioned way this year.  Blessings to all.  NDR

About doctoraquarius

As long as I can remember I have written - poems, observations, stories. Then graduate school, marriage, raising a family, and work occupied my life 100% of the time, and my writing for pleasure took a back seat. I'm back. Retirement from my professional life as a school psychologist, grown children, and an empty nest have freed me to follow my passion. My wonderful husband of nearly 40 years encourages me and my God sustains me.
