Can We Talk

We can email.
We can text.
We can Facebook.
We can tweet.
But can we talk?

Not so much.
Not so well.
Not as we did
not so long ago.

Keyboards, not conversations.
Not learning how to use words.
Not learning how to use body language.
Not learning how to use tone of voice.
Not learning all the things
that make up personal interaction. 

Social media damaging
the ability to communicate.


Is conversation a lost art? I hope not.  I love to talk.
