Foggy Notions

a poet’s journey

Which Social (Net) Works Best?

Where do you want to connect?

Or where do you actually connect?

At the dinner table, in the office, the teacher’s lounge, on the sidelines of a soccer game?

Or is it in Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or LinkedIn?

What is a satisfying social connection these days?

Virtual contact is quite a phenomenon. There is no denying its possibilities. But can it satisfy in the same way that friendship was shared when my grandmother met her neighbor regularly for coffee next door?

Do we gain something else from knowing what is happening in St. Paul or Santa Fe instead of our hometown?

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
