Another thread on Facebook caused me to form this theory: that many of us are avoiding being "alone" with our thoughts by being constantly "connected". I observe so many folks continuously using Facebook, no matter what else they are doing - eating with others; working out; working; walking; driving... and sure there is the odd phone call. I would also throw in glocktalk as well as television. Are many of us now afraid to be alone with our thoughts and instead dodge that prospect by perpetually being "connected"? What do you folks say about this?
