You’ve probably noticed a sad trend in the world. And it revolves around conversation. Or the lack thereof.
Walking into a restaurant, you see it. Husband and wife, both have heads buried in their phones. Frantically texting back and forth. But not with each other.
Or a high school party. Boys and girls are on their phones. Texting away. Just not with anyone attending the party.

Rather, we substitute true conversation for quick quibbles.
We ask each other how we’re doing. While passing by like strangers in the wind.
