Twitter said it best this morning.

Another month means it’s time to take a look at the last one, and there’s also an announcement at the end of today’s post so I guess I’ll get it started.


There have been many innovations in communication throughout history.

From the pigeon to the Pony Express, from the telegraph to the telephone and beyond, all of these advances were made to better connect people to each other.

Today, there are more ways to communicate than ever before.

Messages can be sent and received in the blink of an eye.

When I saw Sue’s prompt for today, which is “connect,” my first thought was we live in a time when it is easier to communicate with more people than it has ever been, but all it takes is a look at current events to see we aren’t connected.

Then I thought about things from a more positive point of view.
