Tuesday - Communication....NOW!

Tuesdays stars say............

An unexpected and perhaps unwelcome phone call or e-mail might find you having to put in some extra time working that you hadn't planned, Jayne. This could be frustrating, and you may feel that someone is taking an unfair advantage of you.

Communication has certainly changed from when we played with two tin cans connected by string and imagined they were a telephone.

On a regular work morning my telephone shrills for attention, both office line and cell. The IM pops like an electronic raindrop and my email begins to deliver 60 messages.
One grabs my attention. Read me now, I am important it screams with its red exclamation mark.
The venue needs to confirm by 9am today if you want five tables with six chairs at each or just six chairs in total. Panic, panic. Major alarm. I am tempted to wait until 9.02am to see what happens!

I long for a remote that will stop everything. Just stop.

Everyone, please breathe. Tragedy, difficulty, dilemma is everywhere, and you know what? That will never change. I can’t fight it. I won’t embrace it, I will however, stop being scared of it. They say doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome is foolish. Yes, yes, yes.

We have made our life into a supermarket where there are are so many varieties for everything. That we can no longer request what we need in simple terms or thoughts.
It has all become so urgent and important within its own speed and the number of choices available.

You want a good day? What type? Healthy without nuts? Funny with a lot of nuts? A saturated fat day? A calcium packed, vital vitamin good day? Instant, decaffeinated, non preservative, recommended by a dermatologist type of day? Go straight to your doctor if you experience happiness for longer than four hours.

Could we get a little casual and try not to strain for results? The bus goes into the city. You need to get into the city, you get on the bus. Done!

Can we stop thinking about ourselves? Consider everyone you communicate with today before you concern yourself with your own thoughts. It may make a difference, that is if anyone is paying attention.
