Can I share a simple moment's grace.. embrace the essence of your face.. feel a presence close to mine in real time.. escape this souless virtual space. Poem & Painting by Mairi
The hysteria about the outage of some Social Media yesterday, brought to mind the above poem. I wrote it last year during one of the prolonged ‘lockdowns’ we had here in Scotland.
Social Media and Virtual Meetings can never be a substitute for real human interaction, and real human touch. Let’s never lose sight of our need for physical connections, and the giving and receiving of actual physical acts of loving kindness. Social Media can create amplified and inauthentic caring, and a sense of self goodness… at the simple touch of a button.
