It seems we sometimes forget the simple pleasure like good company. Our days are so hectic and we often fail to make time to socialize. Yes, we turn to the internet and social media as a convenient all-hours alternative but it isn't really the same. Laughing and sharing a laugh are totally different experienced; you cannot recreate the infectious nature of laughter on the internet. And virtual socialization lacks the companionable quality of time spent with people face-to-face. I sometimes think that a more basic life may be harder and there may be more challenges but there is possibility for a different kind of richness that comes from friends and family in close contact that our busy bustling lives sometimes lacks.
