Whatever happened to the art of conversation?

Raven and Gargoyle Blue Moon Fine Art Print“What ever happened to the art of conversation?” asked the Raven of the Gargoyle.

Raven had grown extremely weary of tweeting and twittering. So he decided that actual face-time would improve his social skills and struck up a conversation with an unwitting gargoyle.

I attended aΒ  dinner a few years ago and observed several of the guests texting each other instead of talking to each other.Β  I don’t use a mobile phone* so I was left out of the “conversation” and thus rendered speechless (a rare phenomena, indeed).

  1. Hello Morgaine – This is something that’s commonplace. I’m often amused when I see couples or families out at dinner or a cafe, once they’ve ordered, everyone (even the kids!) take out their phones/ tablets and pay attention to the electronic gadget instead of the people they’re with! My friends and I have a strict no-phone/ tablet/ electronic gadget handling (except for an emergency) when we’re out with one another. Perhaps this should be a rule πŸ™‚
