I remember.... at least I think I do... a time when people would come calling for no reason... other than to say hello. To sit and chat for hours about random topics of interest. These days... with everything gone digital... it can make for the most awkward of scenarios... Nothing worse than sending out a communication... knowing it was received, and then yourself receiving only silence. Like it's too much to ask for even a simple yes or no answer... or heaven forbid any sort of polite explanation leading to the end of a conversation, thusly closing the topic. Perhaps it is deemed not worthy of their attention. They say no response is still a response... albeit a rather rude one. Sure, a response may come days later... with a brief explanation attached. But what about the times when that reply never comes?
Strange days indeed when all communications seem to cease.
