Are Smartphones making people socially stupid?

Cell Phone RespectThere are 7.2 billion people in the world. To date, there are 7.9 mobile devices in circulation.

Last week I saw a documentary on PBS about cell phone addiction. There are rumors that cellphone addiction will be added to the next DSM as a mental illness.

One of the bloggers in blogging club shared about driving to Michigan to visit with her Grandkids and was amused that they spent most of the time staring at their smartphones.

This is the sad but true case with my Grandkids as well. I’ve noticed that many young people stare at their phones while in public places with friends or family, I wonder if social skills need to be revisited in schools. Its my observation that social intelligence is best learned through modeling or by example. As adults what are we modeling for our young?


FAITH: Step 1 = Action

Today is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. faith-kingThis image is a quote from Dr. King and is one of my favorites. “Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase”.

What is Faith?                                                An online dictionary states; A complete trust or confidence in someone or something. Also; a strongly held belief or theory.

Concerning faith, many quote the bible, “faith means being sure of something hoped for and knowing something is real even if we do not see it.Continuing with the bible; it appears that the quality is of more importance than the quantity or size.”If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can move a mountain, nothing is impossible”. It’s not the amount of faith but the strength of conviction that results in action before the fact.

Whats Missing from your bookshelf?

After posting my top ten favorite books I dug out my copy of Joseph Campbell’s classic. There is an architect in our blogging club which reminded me of another favorite; Postmodernism, which stated that postmodernism began for architecture when the super housing projects in NY were demolished. Campbell states that as a society we are in a identity crises.

   The Chinese word for crises is made up two characters, danger and opportunity. My heart is heavy this week due to becoming aware of a mother of five being homeless and falling through the cracks of moderne “faith-based” social services.
