Ever wonder what you’re missing while you’re looking at a screen?

This relevant, eye-opening video poetry touches on something I think about every so often when I’m walking through the city. I see people staring at their phones as they pass by and wonder what potential relationships they just missed starting because they weren’t paying attention. While our attentions are so focused on not missing a beat on the internet, life is playing on without us, around us. Stop and look up. Be attentive to the world and its detail. What do you see, smell, hear and feel?

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going for a walk to the grocery store and leaving my phone behind my front door.
