It’s good to talk

Telephone advert from 1995

Today we text, email, IM, DM, Snapchat, WhatsApp and Facetime. Back in 1995 the British Telecom company were encouraging us to use the telephone more – quelle surprise! But now, in this year of physical isolation, when people have been told to stay safe and stay away from others – it is helpful to remember that not everyone has the latest technology. This is why I drop a letter to at least a dozen people each week who have no internet access.

Why not have a look through your list of phone numbers, and perhaps call someone you’ve not spoken to in ages.

I wonder if it’s time to remember, “It’s good to talk!”
