Forgive me for my “excellent” picture editing. However this picture below is what I saw this morning as I pulled off from a stop street and looked in my rear view mirror:
What the Heck! Seriously how sad is that?!
– Right next to his mom, and he rather shut himself off from her… by putting headphones on.
– That reflects a lot of what is going on in our society today: “we are here, but not present”
– Or as a lot of people note in London, you see how people shut themselves off from people with thier headphones. Although I believe thats for others reasons too and not just disconnection.)
– However just seeing this boy being next to his mom and still wearing his headphones, made me so sad. How rude is that?
– And how disconnected?
Anyway thats my gripe. My observation.
What do you think? Have you noted how unpresent people can be? And how we disconnect ourselves too often? Thoughts?
