So many things have changed in the world these days. There is so much that is instant and artificial, computer generated and inhumane. Google has removed our desire and passion to travel and find new places, to make our own decisions, and to reach out and communicate with each other. Our children spend more time in front of computers or on smart phones and we spend more time watching netflicks then we spend sitting down together at family meals and talking with each other.
But there are some things that fortunately have remained the same. There is still art, love, nature and invention. When we look around we are reminded of what is real and important in life and we remember to keep in contact and in conversation with each other. We remember to not forget affection and kindness, the comforting sound of a voice and the reassurance of a smile and a hug. We see art that has endured and nature that returns each season without fail. We see ancient icons and memorials invented in previous centuries still standing strong. And we remember what we should really be living for.
