A Retro Way to Say I’m Thinking of You…

    • Hi Nina,

      For a long time I had my cell phone ring programmed to ring like an old phone (we got rid of our land line though a long time ago.) But now that I have a different cell phone, I don’t have that option and I miss it.

      Isn’t it funny how seeing the cord coming out of the phone really helps to convey a sense of “connection” ? I really don’t think we connect to others the same way with cell phones…too easy to be walking around or doing something other than just sitting and listening.

      🙂 Joana

      • i keep my corded phone in the kitchen so i can tuck it between my ear and shoulder and talk to mom while i do dishes!

        • Nice! I usually talk to my mom on my long (cordless) walks down Central Park West. Not exactly quiet, but I get my exercise in while I talk with her, and she gets to hear some of NYC life in the background. Honk, beep, #$#!$%!!!…etc.[?]
