People, Please, Take Your Eyes off of Those Phones

I wrote this today at work during my lunch break after noticing how many people were glued to their cell phones (a daily occurrence).


People, please. Take your eyes off of those phones.
There is a world surrounding you, a real world.
Talk with a friend; go for a walk.
Read a novel; write a story.
Listen to some music; paint a picture.

Experience life . . . not through a plastic box with wires,
But with your eyes, ears, hands and feet.
A storm is brewing outside today; listen to the rain.
Pet a dog; rub a cat.
Hike a forest trail.

Do something . . .
Live your life . . . a real life.
