Reflective Reading #3 -Perspectives on Communication in a Digital Age

After reading the poem EYES by Lisa Maldonado and watching her reading her poem, I was first of all surprised at the differences in the tones of her reading than what I was anticipating. She read the poem as a very sad and angry poem.  Which I guess it was kind of sad.  Her poem is about how she notices all the kids have their eyes glued to their screens when she is out traveling.

My daughter showed me this picture a month or so ago, and Lisa Maldonado’s poem EYES, made me remember it. It is so true in today’s society, we often see people walking with their eyes clued to their personal screens. Even as friends and families are “spending time together” they are ALL ON INDIVIDUAL DEVICES.

Personally, I am guilty for sure at staring at my phone too much. BUT I am trying to correct it. We have incorporated no cell phones during meals together as a family. I am known to take away the kids devices when visiting, as the kids some times all just sit and glair at their own devices instead of actually communicating and spending time TOGETHER.
