Monday will be Memorial Day in the U.S., and we are all reminded to take time to remember those who are no longer with us, and perhaps spend more time with those who are the most important in our daily lives. Perhaps the title of this blog deserves some explanation in this respect. “TechtoExpress” is not only intended to reflect an “express” mode in the rapidity of our dealings with others. It surely has that capacity in terms of how quickly we can communicate on any topic with anyone in the world. Technology also empowers us with many more tools to “express” our thoughts and emotions using new powerful digital tools. More expressive opportunities are now available for more people, who may become the new “artists” of a new century.
Happily we can also now connect with family and friends even when we are not able to be with them personally. Such tools as FaceTime and Skype enable us to do that in real time. So let’s always remember those we love and those who loved us and now live in our memories. And be grateful for the technology that enriches our daily lives so that we can “be” with those we love in so many ways.
Many worry that technology is rapidly accelerating our loves so that we have less time to spend with our closest friends and family members. I don’t think it has to be that way. Do you?
Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
