Thank you for this challenging article. The internet became similarly life altering for me when I used Facebook and blogging to share my late husband’s battle with cancer. That experience changed the way in which I related to the world by creating an invisible chorus of people who cheered and grieved alongside of me.

I discovered that though that attention was oddly gratifying it failed to satiate the deeper needs of my heart and that I likewise needed to put the phone down if I didn’t want to miss out on the truly meaningful and lovely moments of life.
