B where U R

B where U R

This weekend, like many of you, I enjoyed watching some NFL on TV. When I can’t watch the Pittsburgh Steelers, I will root for my local team, the Washington Redskins. Sunday’s game was played against the Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium in Miami. One end zone shot of the game (for every extra point and field goal) kept on showing one attractive female fan enjoying the sun while texting on her phone (apparently the entire game). While Dolphin tickets might not be as expensive as some other teams, the average NFL game ticket is US$113.

I have a friend who complains that he works too much and wants to spend more time with his family. When we joined them for dinner recently, he spent the majority of the evening ignoring his family and friends, responding to work messages on his phone.

On Saturday night, our family made a concerted effort to avoid technology and electronics. Our kids invited their friends over and we played softball and football in our cul-de-sac. As soon as the sun set, we used our fire pit to roast hot dogs and marshmallows for 11 kids on our driveway. Les Stroud, from “Survivorman,” describes watching a fire as mesmerizing and says it provides him with hours of entertainment during his solo jaunts into the wilderness.

Enjoy being in the present. Relish the journey and live in the moment. When you ask someone “How are you?”, wait for the answer and show sincerity in your approach.
