It's amazing how we can feel disconnected in an over-connected world... I love technology, but I'm all for old school living, too. Sometimes, we need to be basic-- like reading actual books. Having a conversation using your voice on the phone. Using a pen and paper to write something down.
If you're feeling disconnected, why not find a pen pal and write a letter? Penpalooza has 7,000 members so far. Sign up; connect with someone; write a letter; make a new friend. Those that are participating say it's been a great way to feel connected and there's something to look forward to!
Hope this helps.
