I Am An Island

Have you every felt so alone and cut off from the world? When it seems like nobody in the world can reach out to you? That is how I feeling today…I forgot my cell phone.

Remember the days before cell phones and pagers…when we didn’t have to be constantly connected to everyone and anyone…including the telemarketers who call me regardless of my number being on that obviously worthless “do not call” list? How did we get here?

The idea of my dear sweet mobile…sitting lonely on my windowsill…chirping and ringing with its futile attempts to grab my attention…well…it just breaks my heart.

It's funny you mention this - I wandered into the Twitter website earlier while killing time, and found myself messaging people.

I have not used twitter for months purely because I grew tired of the endless splurge of messages hitting my mobile phone at all hours of the day and night.
