100 Words on Living

Are we living “Digitally Vicarious”?  It seems that relevance is achieved through multiple online profiles with many of our friends, family, and colleagues only knowing us through our electronic selves.  We spend too much time managing our virtual existence rather than our physical one, and nearly always at the cost of what makes us human.  Living online should only be complimentary rather than seen as a replacement.  It becomes all too easy to hide behind avatars and projected perfection when the true beauty of life is the self with the electronic noise filtered.  Experience life in analogue, not in digital.
