I remember when I was a child watching the old box TV in my room all by myself. There was only four channels and after midnight it went off air.
I was lonely as a child, I was on my own a lot.
My mother worked long hours and my sister did not live with me after my parents divorced I was only 6 years old.
If only I had the access to connect with people and reach out to my friends and family via technology, I bet I wouldn’t had been so lonely.
We had a TV and a Stereo and an old Dial phone with no numbers saved in it there was no option for that.
I did find a paper and pen and started writing, I kept a journal and I started writing silly stories that helped me escape the world I lived in.
I wish I had a computer and the internet and twitter and youtube.
Technology is now everybody’s Best Friend, sister, mother or brother…..when the real physical can not be there.
