Just imagine how two physically distant but longing souls managed to communicate before without the advantage and efficiency of technology.
Imagine all those missed connections from happy or aching, but distant, souls wanting to say things to one another — immediately, as soon as possible, now — but really having no instant avenue of doing so.
Some films made at least more than a decade ago would have story lines of lovers not being able to meet or profess feelings to one another, simply because there was no way of doing so instantly.
Today however, it happens in certain situations that there are more avenues of communication than there are things you would actually need to say to people. Ironically, there are those times when you already know what to say and who to say it to, and you have every means of making that connection, but you have no guts to actually do it.
Maybe the fact of it being too easy technically is what’s making it difficult to do. A press of a button then a ring of a phone, that’s it. A click of a mouse, that’s it.
But no, nothing.
