When you called to ask

“Why aren’t you here?”

And there

On the Phone

If when used to talk

We move to typed messages

We risk turning deaf

n.b. Useful as texting is, there is beauty in the human voice that makes a phone-call something magical.

Misreading, mistyping, misunderstood, misinterpretation of text, with all the confusion and mixed up emotions that these might trigger, can be avoided by hearing the words spoken.

I am grateful for the gifts of hearing and speech while I possess them
