Blogging week: Why?

Editing life

We all do a bit of editing, especially when we use social media. But is it okay just to show people the highlights of our lives? Is it okay to pretend that everything’s perfect?

Modern love

modern_loveIn my lifetime the world has changed rapidly. The world is evolving faster each day. And every aspect of our lives changes according to this new world, according to our vision of the world.

Love, or the way we perceive it, has changed as well. Some say that we have grown to enjoy being alone, that we enjoy the idea that technology can imitate real interaction. We text, we e-mail, we skype, we like, we comment, and, yet, we often find ourselves asking, “What is love?” or, more importantly, “What is love supposed to feel like?” Continue reading
