“I am going to respond from a counseling point of view. An interesting perceptive for those of us who graduated from college in 1994 is how the explosion of computers has taken over. We have a fear reaction of less connecting with individuals. Yet, on an interpersonal level, the research is showing that we are starting to shift. Younger people are wanting more direct interaction. I think its a natural reaction to our over-dependence on computers That is one of the more hopeful things I have learned about tomorrow.”

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
