We...

we have bigger houses but smaller families;
more conveniences, but less time;
we have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgement;
more experts, but more problems;
more medicines, but less healthiness;
we’ve been all the way to the moon and back,
but have trouble crossing the street to meet
the new neighbour.
we build more computers to hold more
information to produce more copies then ever,
but have less communication;
we have become long on quantity,
but short on quality.
these are times of fast foods
but slow digestion;
tall men but short character;
steep profits but shallow relationships.
it’s a time when there is much in the window,
but nothing in the room.

Hiya, Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and commenting on my 'lighthouse post'. It was lovely visiting your part of the world. How lucky you are to live by the sea. I dont know why I havnt visited before, I was born and bred in Newcastle and dont live that far away so there is no excuse. I will definately come back to visit Marsden Rock. Mr K's Grandfather worked on the lift in Marsden Grotto so we will have to take a look there too.

Hope you had a lovely Easter and are enjoying the Bank Holiday X
